The Vertical and Horizontal Life of Metal

By Christina Winter, Allied Member ASID
Metal can be applied to many different types of surfaces.  It can create a focal piece in a living room applied to a fireplace mantle, make a statement in a kitchen as a countertop, or create an emphasis on columns in a space.  Today, there are many companies out there helping us to make the application of metal possible.
Chemetal which is a metal laminate manufacturer has over 100 different metal designs. You can use their products for countertops, vertical dividers, or an accent in a recessed ceiling.  See below for some of their innovative designs. crescendo pinkCresendo Pink
