HGTV's Nate Berkus Swears By This Unexpected Furniture Material
HGTV star Nate Berkus' latest obsession is a French trend from the '60s — bent or molded stainless steel furniture. These sleek and timeless pieces pair functionality and form.
The simplicity and user-friendliness of this style have allowed it to hold appeal for decades. Knock-offs abound, but finding the real deal is like unearthing buried treasure.
Despite its popularity in Paris, finding authentic pieces in this style is not easy. In addition, many tables, chairs, and accents will also need to be shipped from overseas.
Hone your search by adding brand names that were known for their molded steelwork. Notable designers include Maison Jansen and Mathieu Matégot.
If the lack of supply is holding you back, look for recently-made furniture based on the vintage style. Modern artisans have their own takes for sale on sites like Etsy and eBay.
