Festive Flourishes: The 12 Finishes Of Christmas

‘Tis the season of sparkle and embellishment, of glitzy flourishes and eye-catching decorations. The desire to deck the halls brings out our inner maximalist, as we search for new ways to infuse our homes with life. In celebration of the start of our Winter Sale, we’ve selected 12 finishes that will help you keep that sparkle all year round.

 

Glass

Glass really comes into its own in the winter months. Its icy allure brings the outdoors in, adding a touch of glamour to traditional Christmas decor. This year, try incorporating a cluster of pendants as one of your festive flourishes. The best news? You won’t want to take them down come Twelfth Night.

Ceramic

Ceramic is a perfect example of what happens when designers take it upon themselves to perfect one of nature’s most revered materials. It combines the intricacy of marble with added heat and stain resistance, making it ideal for the busy hosting season. This season’s crop has seen brands experimenting with everything from toasted golden tones through to inky Sahara noirs.

Cool and collected, chrome exerts a timeless appeal —the material of choice for many a mid-century modern design. Its reflective lustre helps to boost luminosity during the winter months and works well with finishes across the spectrum. How’s that for a silver lining?

Quilted

The need to cosify our interiors has dominated design ever since Hygge’s spread south in 2017. It’s sparked a renewed interest in quilted furniture with styles such as Moroso’s Gentry and Ligne’s Phileas occupying centre stage. Taken together, they represent a softer, more organic look at luxury, in which comfort and relaxation reign supreme.

Plastic

  Industry legends such as Verner Panton first saw the potential of plastic as early as the 1960s. It’s ability to mould to form established it as a key material in the creation of many of the mid-century’s most recognisable designs. Today, the challenge is to create recyclable versions of these beloved icons, with Vitra’s Eames Plastic Side Chair and Fritz Hansen’s N02 Collection leading the fore.

Brass

If chrome is cool and sleek, brass is rich and nostalgic, a harbinger of Art-Deco elegance and retro interiors. A natural companion for velvet, it has an inherent opulence that feels especially indulgent come Christmas-time. It can be as subtle or all-encompassing as you like, ranging from delicate accent details to burnished brass tables.
