Trend in the country houses for ages, the fence has taken a new turn to adapt to our contemporary interiors. Used to create pieces of furniture as well as decorative accessories, it comes in different forms and is dressed in colors, sometimes surprising. A glimpse of this light and airy material that is equally inviting on the shelves of major brands and in the designers’ studios.
We love them, I will say even more, we adore these wire shelves. Left in their raw appearance or slightly gilded, it is their aged, weathered aesthetic that makes them charming pieces coveted. Perfect in the kitchen, we like to display the most beautiful cups of our collection, to suspend dried herbs or to store fruits there way pantry. Do not be afraid to adopt them in the hall or bathroom.There is no doubt that you will find a small (and pretty) something to put away.
We see them everywhere, but even so, the gridlock, we do not get tired! Installed above a desk, they play the practicality card to accommodate ongoing projects, inspirations and become pretty moodboard. In an entry, they welcome the postcards we get friends, the sunglasses (it would be a shame to forget them again this morning), keys and small lists of take-away races. Finally, in the living room or in a bedroom, holiday memories, family photos or the sweet little words that always please those who receive them are suspended here.
It’s been several seasons now, and it seems that copper has not yet said its last word.Moreover, in mesh version, it is really the most beautiful effect, you do not agree? If it looks good in the jumble mode, the result is just as nice when it takes the form of a small piece of storage that we slide everywhere. Trendy copper wire is a big yes!
Halfway between contemporary sculpture and decorative objects, Benedetta Mori Ubaldini’s 3D mesh creations seem to come alive. This Milanese artist, whose work is closely linked to the imagination of fairy tales, works with multiple subjects. But it is especially for her work with wire mesh that she is recognized. Hand-crafted, twisted, assembled, progressively wound, the elements to which it gives shape acquire an appearance of continuity.Clouds, birds, fish, rabbits or houses, these surprising and light decorations seem to float in the space once installed.
Wire mesh furniture
Betting on wire cabinets, especially when they are large, is to ensure a less loaded atmosphere in the room in which it is decided to install them. We can also turn to fully open models (industrial locker, convenient for storing the daily little bazaar) that to cabinets that have opted for the grid effect for their doors. These last ones take the advantage of the showcase a little hidden, and the result can be very nice, all depends on what you slip there. It’s up to you!
Wire mesh design
Wire mesh is a highly decorative material, and the designers of yesterday and today have understood it! Harry Bertoia, in the 50s and 60s, has moreover makes its specialty by giving birth to its famous chairs and its Diamond chair whose entire structure of the seat has this meshed appearance. In total phase with current trends, these pieces, which are more than sixty years old, are still published by Knoll.
More recently, it is Mathieu Challières who has appropriated this material to manufacture his luminaries.Poetic and elegant, its lampshades copper wire, in which colorful birds have found refuge, prove once again that chicken toasting has a bright future ahead.
