Growing up in Switzerland included a few visits to dairies when I was at school – how stereotypically! When I saw the enormous copper kettles of the cheese makers, it was probably my first encounter with copper. It was just on the very borders of my awareness until I got in touch with British industrial designer Tom Dixon a few years ago. In my opinion, he is the one who started a new copper hype with his iconic round lamps (bottom left in my picture). Now the hype finally reached the high street.
Copper has a certain warmth which makes it perfect for the cold wintertime. I know what I am talking about: It's almost a year since I got my very own Tom Dixon copper ball lamp. I still couldn't be happier about how much the colour of this lamp changed the atmosphere in my whole living room.
This Christmas, copper and its alloys bronze and brass seems to be the hot thing to get: From tree decoration to candle holders, lanterns to tinsel, I spotted it all in the shops. Now is the time to dress yourself and your living room in this warm colour! My selection might help you to achieve this… especially the handbag from YesI'mFrench (bottom right corner) will be the star of every party. Go for it!
How do you like copper and is there something on my list you are craving for as well?
