From the Spring run­ways to the in­te­rior de­sign world, gold state­ment pieces are trend­ing.

As Mar­ket­watch pointed out at the start of the new year, gold is the in­vest­ment with the biggest turn­around po­ten­tial in 2017. It’s due in part to the re­bound­ing pop­u­lar­ity of Chi­nese and In­dian jew­elry—both use quite a bit of gold. Ad­di­tion­ally, the com­mod­ity is look­ing like it is ready for a rally af­ter tak­ing a multi-year dip. And, as ever, what hap­pens in the stock mar­ket is re­flected on the run­ways. Un­sur­pris­ingly, Saint Lau­rent’s and Os­car de la Renta’s drip­ping gold lamé dresses were hailed as this spring’s stand­outs.

Trend-lov­ing in­te­rior de­sign­ers have taken note by mix­ing cop­per, gold, and brass pieces with pow­er­ful, darker hues—namely, black and deep navy—that cre­ate the strong­est vis­ual com­bi­na­tions. One of the in­dus­try’s top tal­ents, Amanda Nis­bet raves about the sun­shine gold leaf Pe­tu­nia pendant ( SHOWN ON PAGE), not­ing, “She is the per­fect lit­tle pendant that can be placed any­where—end­less use, end­less va­ri­ety.” Gold, it turns out, has be­come the new neutral! The One Kings Lane Col­lec­tion Pa­mona lamp, a new launch for the brand, cen­ters around a spher­i­cal, gold-leaf base paired with a linen and parch­ment shade. From can­dle­sticks and corkscrews to the most mod­ern of chaises, here’s a cu­rated look at the gold-star pieces for your abode.
