Spotlight LIM

Known for its cool, contemporary furniture and decor, LIM in Cape Town is known – and loved – for its sharp aesthetic and local flair.

This includes a wide range of clean-lined metal furniture such as storage and shelving, tables, drinks trolleys, and decorative accessories, including lamps, fire screens and candlesticks.

Just like any piece, the colour of metal furniture plays a big role in determining which piece will suit a space best. So, to help clients make the correct choice, here LIM shares some advice for choosing the correct colour metal pieces – black, silver or gold – for your home.

Gold metal furniture

Glossy and glam, high-shine gold is the way to go if you want to create an ultra-luxe Hollywood scheme. If you are opting for glossy gold, keep shapes clean and linear and opt for upholstery in natural or pastel hues. For a more contemporary, organic take, choose metal with a matte or brushed gold finish.

Silver or stainless-steel metal furniture

Silver metal furniture has a distinctly cool and contemporary vibe to it. This glossy metal option works especially well when it comes to more sculptural pieces as well as linear designs. As the colour can appear cold, it works best paired with loads of texture and natural finishes such as stone, ceramic and wood.

Black metal furniture

A staple at LIM, black metal furniture is oh-so-cool. These pieces are extremely versatile and work equally well in anything from a contemporary South African home, styled with local artisanal touches, to warm and cosy farmhouse interiors, sleek industrial schemes and boho-style rooms where it can be paired with lots of colour and texture. Whether used in a striking clean design or a more sculptural one, black metal is effortlessly on trend and blends well into any scheme, making it a popular choice.
