Incorporate verdigris into your home with these beautiful accessories and pieces of furniture
Perfect as an accent, this vivid green-blue hue has a gorgeous natural depth. Use it to add a pop of colour to a neutral room scheme or alongside other bright shades for a statement look. We’ve picked out five of our favourite pieces in vivid verdigris to get you started.
1. Verdi table lamp
Heathfield & Co’s Verdi table lamp is made from blown glass with volcanic frit, lava and marble textures that create a unique patina, while its smooth curvaceous shape makes a stunning silhouette. For a striking contrast, team it with a simple lampshade in a metallic or neutral tone, like this 12in bronze gold satin drum (shown above) also from Heathfield & Co. Dimensions: full height of lamp with shade, 80cm; base height, 44cm; base width 26cm.
2. Husk sofa
The contemporary shape and restful shade of this Husk sofa, which was designed by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia at Chaplins, would suit both classic and modern room schemes alike. The sofa is made up of a number of structural cushions for added comfort. It comes in two lengths, 225cm and 261cm, and you can choose from a copper or bronze nickel painted finish for the feet.
3. Two-tone glassware
This two-tone carafe (H25xdiam10cm) and glasses (H12cm) set by Jochen Holz at Mint has a distinctive finish – perfect for serving refreshing drinks on hot summer days. Plus the irregularities of blown glass mean that each piece is unique.
