This Week's Top 5 Favorite 1stdibs Items: Shiny, Glimmering Metal!

We've just been loving all the Mid-Century Modern, industrial and steel products that Steelcase, our design influence from earlier in the week, produces. In honor of those shiny and gorgeous pieces, we have gathered five equally shiny and industrial products from this week's 1stdibs newest listings. Combined together they would all create a wildly futuristic, glimmering and darn durable interior space. Also, the perfect home for robots.

1) Rare Coffee Set by Saara Hopea-Untracht
Boy wouldn't you impress your guests if you came out to serve coffee and snacks with this stunning silver serving set! So shiny, they'll all think you'll rice and stylish enough they'll all know you have great tastes!
Price: $3,600
Dealer:
J. Lohmann Gallery

2) Pair of wall appliques by Maison Charles
Sure these two brushed metal wall appliques might seem simple and almost pointless, but you can never have enough metal items in your spaces. Expand from the usual furniture and table top items to bringing metal to the wall!
Price: contact dealer
Dealer:
Caira Mandaglio

3) A Large Pair of Milo Baughman designed Square Metal Sidetables
We love how sharp and square these tables are, so totally industrial looking. But, we also like that they feature a stone-looking top, so it's not all metal. Besides, we think a metal top would be hard to keep polished!
Price: contact dealer
Dealer:
Talisman

4) Chrome Porthole Wall Mirror
We told you earlier to make sure to not neglect the walls when trying to fill your interiors with wall to wall metal and chrome, and we love this ultra-shiny but also highly functioning chrome porthole wall mirror. Also great if your room is nautical-themed!
Price: $2,200
Dealer:
Modern One

5) Chrome Arc Floor Lamp
The graceful curves, the stunning arc, the shiny material, this chrome arc floor lamp is a match made in heaven to an owner looking for light that shines both with the bulb and the body! We love it.
Price: $2,900
Dealer:
SOHO Treasures

Don't forget to check out the rest of this week's listings from 1stdibs, where you can find more fabulous, one-of-a-kind show-stopping pieces, as well as a number of other great pieces!
