Rich upholstery material like velvet and hides mixed with the bright highlights of brass, iron and gold-plated metals will further the trend of mixing metals with softer contrast textures and surface finishes. The glitz of metals brings out the softness of the contrast fabric making the designed spaces look chic and luxurious.
