TREND ALERT: Chic Copper


Move over silver and gold. Embrace the copper trend in your home


PGH Bricks & Pavers has released a new collection of fully glazed metallic finishes including Copper Lustre. Available to use internally and externally, these bricks can brave the elements without losing their metallic colour and shine.



Inject a bit of mid-century glamour into your interiors with the Centurion mirror. Handcrafted from start to finish, the mirror is part of Eco Chic’s Boyd Blue collection and, like most of the company’s products, is made from sustainable materials. Designer Shelley Boyd is passionate about designing eclectic, handmade artisan furnishings and only uses suppliers who engage in fair trade practises and, in most cases, have education programs for the surrounding communities.


With its pentagonal faces and copper-like finish, the Nugget stool from Coco Republic will add a bit of sparkle to your interiors. Made from ceramic, this modern stool is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.


Proving to be extremely versatile, pressed-metal panels can be used as a kitchen splashback, on the ceiling and bathroom walls or as an interesting feature wall throughout the home. Made from copper, this Fish Scale panel from Pressed Tin Panels is treated with a non-chromate treatment, which prepares the surface for painting or powder coating.


Suitable for the outdoors and applications with water, the Rough Cast copper panel can be used for just about anything, even as a delightful water feature for your outdoor area.


Sometimes a new renovation requires a few trendy lights to jazz things up a bit. The Ferro Bowl small ceiling light from Globe West comes assembled with electrical fittings supplied, though hardwiring is required.

Alison Jackson has produced a range of limited-edition hollowware for Form Function Style. Combining traditional silversmith techniques with a contemporary aesthetic, Alison individually hand-raises each copper bowl from a flat sheet through to its finished form with a waxed finish.
