oCopper is everywhere—from bed to bath and everywhere in between, decorators are incorporating this beautiful metal to achieve a variety of aesthetics. Copper can be taken from industrial chic to luxe glamor with ease, and it’s a timeless choice for almost any decor.
I’ve always been a fan of mixed metals and metallic sheens on, well, anything (sparkly!)—but what truly sent me head over heels in love with copper was this romantic idea of a buzzing kitchen warmly reflected in its soft reflection of pots and pans in varying sizes.
Something about it makes one feel as though the kitchen welcomes—cold steel can often give the impression of a seasoned chef turning up his nose at a less-practiced novice. Copper cookware beckons: Pick me up.
Of course, most of us can’t see the sensibility of trading in our faithful and broken-in cookware for an entirely new set of shiny, designer pots and pans—I, for one, intend to use the stainless Calphalon set I received as a wedding gift until, if not after, the handles fall off. However, we can incorporate this ageless metal into our kitchens in other ways. Here are some of my favorite copper items currently on the market, ranging from barware to hardware and just about every utensil in between.
