New year, New Styles

New year, New Styles

We’re only a month into the New Year but we already know that the interior design trends for 2020 involve a lot of natural stone and a lot of metal. These materials are great because they work with just about every style ranging from coastal to industrial, modern to traditional, and everything in between. If you’re looking for a fresh, new start to 2020, try a furniture re-vamp with some of the incredible pieces available only at Mum’s Place, right here in Pacific Grove. 

Some of our favorite pieces right now are beautifully crafted out of marble, iron, fossilized clam shells, brass, gold, and glass. While a lot of these elements can easily seem heavy in your home, our interior designers hand selected some elegant pieces that will fit in with almost any style. 

Turner Console by Universal

The Turner Console by Universal is a great console for a hallway, entrance, or sofa back table in any industrial home. This utilitarian piece features a pewter-finished, woven metal grate and a beautiful Bluestone top. All together, this piece looks like an incredible antique store find. Paired-down and simplified, it is the perfect piece for any modern industrial home. 

Bistro Table by Coast to Coast

The Bistro Table is very different from the Turner Console Table. With a mid century modern tulip flair, the brassy finish of the metal adds some contemporary flair to the classic shape. The heavy metal base and stone top anchors it the space, while the white marble brightens it, making it the perfect piece for any modern coastal home. Use it as a dining table in your tiny apartment, or place it in the breakfast nook in your kitchen, making it the best place in the house to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. 

Marble Accent Table by Coast to Coast

The Marble Accent Table is another white marble, gold metal base item to come out of Coast to Coast. The combination of materials is current, modern, and airy, despite the natural heaviness and sturdiness of the materials and they work so well together because they are visually contrasting yet materially similar. The airyness of the base is essential in making the combination of these materials work, and Coast to Coast is one of the best manufacturers for these materials. 

Garrity Accent Table by Uttermost

One of our absolute favorite accessories is the Garrity Accent Table by Uttermost. This beautiful three-shelved piece is elegant and moody with antique gold leaf iron supports and tempered black glass shelves. It’s not only a striking piece, it’s also functional providing three layers of display shelves giving you ample room to show off some of your family photos or other decor. This accent table would work perfectly in any smaller home because it provides storage without appearing bulky. The three layers of shelves and gold leafed - iron supports make it airy because you can see through the piece, while the rich black glass shelves reflect light around the room, opening up your space. 

Graham Wine Console by Hooker

Finally, a wine rack that doesn’t look like it’s 100 years old! This Graham Wine Console by Hooker is a great piece for any contemporary or coastal home and has the ability to hold up to . 48 bottles! The Venetian white marble glistens, presenting an aura of elegance and sophistication, while the champagne metallic base adds a bit of beautiful functionality to the console. While the marble top provides interesting color and pattern, the legs of the piece are finished with a texture to almost appear sandy. Although this piece is certainly elegant, the mixing of textures and colors tones it down a bit to fit in with your refined coastal aesthetic.

Mary End Table by Hooker

We have yet to meet a customer who is not drawn to this beauty. The Mary End Table by Hooker pays homage to traditional forms while adding a fun pop of pink to an otherwise sophisticated end table. Despite its boldness, this piece is particularly versatile as well. The toned-down silvery gold metallic base is unassuming while the pink Dragon Onyx top adds texture, depth, and fun, allowing you to pair this table with a mid century gray chair, a crisp white leather sofa, or a velvet-upholstered chesterfield couch. It would fit right into a girl’s bedroom or provide a much-needed accent color to a plain living room. It could even be the perfect stool for your vanity… the possibilities are endless!

Amani Accent Chest by Hooker

This Armani Accent Chest isn’t quite mixing metals and natural stones, but the golden undertones of the wood make this piece luxurious in its own way. The geometric carved details on this piece makes it feel luxurious while the the warmth of the wood creates a more casual environment. Perfect for anyone who prefers their coastal home to have a little more interesting detail and extra texture, this Amani Accent Chest combines the best mix of natural materials to give your space the laid-back elegance it deserves. 

Petrified Wood Accent Table by Palecek

The Petrified wood accent table by Palecek is another great option that leans a bit on the casual side. Though refined, with a rich petrified wood top and smooth metal legs, the tones of the wood and organic shape of the top is another great choice for a modern and sophisticated coastal home. Also available with black iron legs or a black petrified wood top, you can take this piece into an industrial setting or an eclectic space.
