Design Detail / Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal_1

I kind of fell in love with this photo yesterday.  How great are the vintage metal file cabinets in this office?  It got me thinking about metal accents.  If done right, they can really be a bold statement.  Here are a few other offices or design studios that have also incorporated metal (done right!)  Above:  Alicia Lund from Chetah Is The New Black found the perfect vintage cabinets for her home studio–love how they look against her bright white floor and walls.

What an amazing looking parsons desk (this is no West Elm Parsons Desk that is for sure!)  Again, chrome paired with bright white–a look that always works I think.

The vintage piece above reminds me of  my old gym lockers from Jr. High School.  What a great piece for a design studio, makes filing look cool.

I am thinking these steps are not functional and more for show.  I love this minimalist look. Fuchsia + chrome are always a nice match….
