One of the often posted images in interior design goes right now around the black metal trim around windows & doors. What used to have a very industrial look, is now evolving slightly towards a more contemporary approach mixing steel with warmer decor and plants to offset them.

What has been used for doors and windows is becoming – and that is the trend here – an indoor element. You’ll see them more and more as a room divider option now. When in Milan earlier this year, I already observed really nice room divider designs (in a different material though) at the international Salone event.

And that’s the image that made me think about writing a trend post because when you even find those doors in a shower, we can definitely say these metal frames have gone beyond their initial purpose and are all trending now.
And this last image above is a very nice example of how to soften a cooler metal look with some greenery all set up in beautiful different glass containers. If you ever had any doubts of how to integrate these room dividers not wanting a too obvious industrial style, get a half-round table with some plants allowing still visibility, and you are all set!
