Chrome, in its original yellow hue, was born as an artist’s pigment in the early 19th century. Today, it has taken a new form—to add shine to interior design with a splash of history. Chrome finishes, with their reflective and metallic qualities, are used in modern and contemporary design for accents, furniture, and lighting. Without doing much, they add a timeless sophistication to any space. If that sparks your curiosity, this curation of products in chrome finish would be a great start!
