Dynamic Duo: Metal and Wood

Metal and wood are a dynamic duo, critical design elements that work even better when paired together. In interior design, balance is everything, as in the warmth of wood and the cool sheen of metal.

Consider these metal light fixtures against a wooden ceiling:

Or the mix of industrial and rustic rolled into one, like this wooden table with a metal base, metal chairs with wooden shelves, framed by a wooden floor with metal lighting. 

I love that in this space, both elements perfectly are aligned with patterns and shapes.

An ordinary space becomes a lovely nook with a combo of wood and metal. 

Corrugated metal roof panels complete a unique rustic look that is cabin chic.

Together, metal and wood are a great union. Have some fun with a wood and metal combination in your next project, and be sure to check out more great ideas on my pinboard for inspiration.
