Wrap Attack

Cabinetry & Metal: The perfect match!

Have you ever considered using Modern Metal as an insert for your cabinetry? Lexie Saine Design and Sabrina Alfin Interiors have recently specified these in their projects.  In fact, this is one of the most popular uses of our smaller panels.

Happy Thanksgiving!

With Thanksgiving dinner just hours away, I hope you have your elastic waistband pants ready and your mingling topics queued up!

Design in Unexpected Places

A few weeks back Annie and I had the pleasure to visit a new manufacturing facility. We witnessed waterjets and laser cutters creating beautiful patterns into metal, and we checked out everything from materials to shipping crates.  As we took a stroll throughout the facility Annie looked at the floor and begged the question “What […]

Doggy doors galore!

Here at Modern Metal our love for metal is obvious, but if there’s one thing we love just as much as a stylish steel design, it’s dogs! You’ve seen Annie’s posts about her labs Archie and Hector who double as her family’s trusty companions and our studio guard dogs. Recently we met the newest member […]

Similarly, on the East Coast, artist Alexa Meade has found inspiration in her commute as well, as shown above in her acclaimed piece also titled Transit. I first came across […]
