There is something so complimentary and cozy about the combined look of metal and wood. Maybe it's the softness of wood contrasted by the hard surface of metal. What ever it is, I love the look of it! The combination can be found around my home in various displays:
#1 - Wall Art: Reclaimed tin ceiling framed in salvaged barn wood (Silver Fox Salvage, Albany, NY)
#2 - Hall Display: Wooden side table stained in cherry, legs painted in black. Metal tins from Homegoods, one holds a candle, the other holds twigs from a tree we had to cut down in order to build our home.
#3 - Kitchen: We have Tabouret metal stools that line our island (mocha stain, soapstone surface) as well as a variety of wooden bowls and dishes, one of which I keep next to our range to soften the amount of stainless steel.
#4 - Log Holder: Although we have a gas fireplace, I love having logs next to the hearth. Below is a basket I found that is held together by a metal fence design paired with wicker.
