Interior Design Trends To Watch: Gold Rush!

While silver and chrome have reigned supreme in recent years, gold is making a triumphant return in interior design and we say welcome back! Regal, warm and glamorous, the hue adds instant elegance and splendor to any room.

We recently returned from High Point Market, the world’s largest home furnishings trade show, where gold accessories and accents were highly showcased. From furniture hardware and upholstery to artwork and lighting, gold was everywhere!

Like a kid at Christmas, we walked around with saucer-sized eyes as we took in the beautiful displays and took countless pictures. Here are just a few of our favorites and what we love about them.

Gold accessories

Gold accessories are the easiest and least expensive way to add a touch of gold to your home decor. And we love this colorful arrangement. Blue and yellow are complimentary colors, which makes the pairing perfect for maximizing the impact of gold.


Two-toned gold

Two-toned furniture is another current trend in interior design, yet this chest’s “wow” factor is taken to another level with the addition of gold hardware. The chest becomes a statement piece that artfully blends beauty with function.


Golden conversation starter

When does a simple stool become a glamorous conversation starter? When it looks like hammered gold and is topped with coral chenille! Whether you love it or hate it, it can’t be ignored.


Gold artistry

Is it a chair or a work of art? It’s hard to decide when a stunning Moroccan motif is finished in gold. A blush-hued fabric adds feminine charm and delicacy to the exotic design.


Chandeliers and large-scale light fixtures are always eye-catching, but a gold finish and intricate design make this one a showstopper.


Golden grandeur

Oh, the grandeur of gold! Long may you reign.
