Market by Julia Stevens

Published on October 12, 2020

What was once a material used mostly by high-end designers like Milo Baughman, chrome is becoming a staple in the collections of big-box retailers, and we can understand why. Sleek, futuristic, and often tubular, the shiny finish is both elevated and understated. Warm it up with complementary colors and lots of texture. The best part? Ultra-reflective surfaces make even the smallest space feel more expansive. Below, shop our favorite chrome pieces on the market.    

Not only is the shine out of this world, but Ferm Living’s candleholder distributes its weight equally, so your taper is sure to stay steady.

It’s not every day you see a circular storage system—this one has four glass shelves ideal for displaying all angles of your books, vessels, and greenery. 

The Coda chair features a responsibly sourced sling seat that you’ll be relaxing in all winter long. 

Crafted from powder-coated steel and chrome-plated steel tubes, this bar cart is just as of-the-moment today as it was when it was designed in 1963. 

IKEA’s Simrishamn lamp comes in table, floor, and pendant options to satisfy all your lighting needs. 

The Semi Pendant enameled metal shade will cast a cone-shaped glow over a dining table, desk, or reading nook. 

A sleek take on the sawhorse table, this design combines twin chrome bases with a rectangular, square, or round glass top. 

Keep these futuristic planters on their bases to draw the eye up, or place them directly on the floor. 

Chrome and Primavera marble (known for its black, green, and white swirls) are here to prove their compatibility with the Tube dining table. Lunch has never looked better.
