Every fall, design lovers descend on London for the vast London Design Festival. Trade shows sprout up all across town and local design districts throw open their doors for general revelry. It's one big design-centric party, but through it all, five hot design trends stood out amongst the rest.
1. Copper is the new brass.
You may have thought brass is the perfect metal finish, but not so. The next time you're in the market to revamp your space, think copper. This vibrant shade was plentiful in sinks and Casamatera introduced a copper cooktop for its new Cave Kitchen unit at the trade show, Tent London. Also, at Tent were some terrific copper lighting fixtures by ALP and a wonderful set of copper fireplace tools by blacksmith James Price.
