Mix & match in interior decorating: materials

To continue my series of articles on the mix & match in interior decorating, I want to show that beyond patterns and colors, designers can as well mix materials, sometimes completely incompatible in origin.

In the picture below, the young designer Hilla Shamia has created a bridge between craft and design. In these objects, the two materials blend into each other down to the smallest wooden veining, so as to create a very contemporary looking furniture.

In this case the two materials, opposite by their nature and composition, end up joining and blending.

During my last visit to Maison & Objet in Paris, I found this tree stand for the brand SDA Décoration made from pieces of teak assembled with a resin (sold in sheets of 50×50 cm). An added bonus that represents their slogan, « Another point of view on nature. »

In the same spirit, in the photo below, Novoceram has set a spa with two very different styles of tiles for bathrooms, the series Cast and Noah, the ceramic parquet, two separate collections inspired by two completely different materials: the Swiss quartzite vals and different essence of wood.

Cast et Noa

Obviously they have a great impact also when they are not combined together.

The brand Bleu Nature, famous for looking for the wood for its creations along river banks, has isolated from time and aging a piece of wood within a block of acrylic glass in order to turn it into original stools and footrests.

For its part, the famous Italian luxury brand Gucci, under the artistic direction of Frida Gianinni, has presented a collection of jewelry, Bamboo Collection, which combines bamboo wood and silver, such as the ring and pending below.

In conclusion, anything can be mixed, it’s just a matter of taste! If you are looking for other ideas to mix and match, I suggest you to read four other articles:
