There are plenty of trends we're expecting to see take off in 2024, but one we're especially excited about it is that of cool, chrome metals in home decor and furniture. Characterized by a sheen/luster that's typically shiny, metallic, and/or reflective, pieces made in this colorway (if you will) excel in adding a modern, otherworldly touch to an otherwise grounded and maybe even "flat" room.

So when you're taking a look at the best home decor stores in the coming weeks keep an eye out for this emerging concept — we're quite sure it's going to take off as the year progresses. It's already appearing in schemes by designers like Ryan Saghian and Noa Santos, people known for their pared back approach. And what it does is lift the room, adding a little flash of light that energizes the whole space. 

We've collated a special editor-approved edit of some of the best gold and silver chrome pieces available now, including home decor, tables, and even lighting fixtures, all fitting perfectly into this interior design trend
