Slimmer Pins

The mid-century look has been immensely popular in the last couple of years, but industrial furniture is also winning many favors. Tapered, wooden furniture legs are about to be replaced by thinner metal designs. This means stackable chairs with simple, black frames, trestle table legs, and couches with more delicate support. The result? Furniture that has higher utility value and a more minimalist appearance.

Adapted into a decor trend, this means loving all the blemishes in your home that makes it authentic, from dents in your wall to the scratches on your wooden floors. Doing the bare minimum repairs sounds pretty good to us.

Mixed Metals
