Ready to move into cube territory? Also from Crate & Barrel, these Patina Brass Cubes have a soft brushed look and plenty of modular flair. View two below, and imagine how fabulous a quartet of these metal wonders would look in a large living room.
If a grouping of items interests you and you’re determined to keep the look low-key, try taking a mellow approach. Choose items in understated tones, such as soft blue. You can also opt for a monochromatic feel by sticking to objects in the same color family. A trio of vases makes a lovely yet calm statement on the low coffee table below. The dual-toned surface of the smallest vase creates just the right amount of drama. More on adding drama in the next section!
If you are a child of the 90s, the idea of mirrored coffee tables would most likely feel both odd and garish. In an era where beige was the color of choice and simple, straight lines along with rigid geometric shapes defined a modern style that quickly became generic, there was really no room for something so sparkly and brilliant. But as with everything else, the circle of fashion and design has once again revived styles such as vintage, retro, Art Deco and even Hollywood Regency. And with this revival, mirrored décor once again found space in homes across the globe.
