Decorative metal finishes – a beautiful addition for metal fabricators
Metal has been used as a popular decorative feature in homes since 2700BC when the Ancient Egyptians began to bring it into their homes. Since then, tastes have shifted and evolved, but a glance on any up-market interiors website will show that metal is still as popular today as it ever was.
Used throughout commercial and domestic interiors on wall claddings, flooring, furniture, light fittings and much more, the latest decorative metal surfaces and facades can help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to your service offering.
A wide range of uses for decorative metal finishes
Lighting – Over recent years, a renaissance in metal furnishings has been ushered in across the globe, thanks to innovators such as the highly successful British designer, Tom Dixon, who first created iconic pieces such as his Etch and Etch Web Pendant Lights.
Furniture – Architect, engineer and designer Jean Prouvé introduced mass produced metal sheet furniture to affluent consumers in the 1930’s. With the creation of chipboard and MDF, metal skinned furniture is now versatile, durable, cost-effective, and stylish. From chairs to kitchen units, there is a decorative metal surface to suit.
Ceilings – Decorative metal ceilings date back to the 1870’s1 when they were originally manufactured from corrugated iron sheets and used as a form of fire separation between the floors of buildings. Today’s sleek metal ceiling tile systems owe their origins to this decorative tradition.
Walls – whether the interior is rustic, comforting, modern or brutalist, there is a decorative aluminium façade to suit. From stunning splashbacks to slick corporate receptions, metal surfaces are a versatile way to bring in texture, colour and reflection to any space.
