Does it mesh with your style?

Steel mesh was all the rage in the 1950s, and it seems to be making a comeback. Now, instead of just being used for furniture and accessories, it is showing up in architectural applications, such as balustrades, room partitions and window coverings.

Even mesh-look items made of fabric or other materials seem to be trending. These lamps knock me out!

  3. I really love mesh, Dana! For a light look, it's such a great alternative to glass. Much cheaper too. I love how they've used it in that white cube house (which was featured in Dwell some time ago, amazing house). It adds so much texture to the all white theme and gives it a cool industrial look.

    1. I love the use on that white house too, especially in the top floor windows. It looks fantastic from the street.
