Good as Gold — the interior trend that we will love forever

In the ever-shifting world of interior design, where trends come and go like the changing of the seasons, gold has always managed to remain relevant. From the Byzantine churches to Cleopatra’s hallowed halls, the Art Deco movement to now, the gilded hue has kept up with the changing times, evolving to suit. Seen these days in a refined form, gold has crept its way into many a modern home. Art, lighting and furniture has all been given the Midas touch, with designers like Tom Dixon, Kartell and Lee Broom all favouring the fancy metallic. And while ascertaining the perfect gilded feature is entirely driven by personal preference, we’ve rounded up a few that may entice.
