2020: A Year in Color!

The new year is upon us and with that comes an abundance of goals and resolutions. While I always opt to eat healthier as a new year comes around, these cupcakes are making my mouth water! No, I’m not trying to break your diet plans already with cupcake cravings but rather showing off the soft […]

It’s a deal to use steel!

Nickel is a popular type of metal that we love just as much as you. It provides a clean finish that matches with almost all surfaces and seems to stand the test of time in terms of looks. While the process of finishing a grille in the nickel plating that everyone loves isn’t necessarily quick […]

Well, did you know we can weld?

Our first love here at Modern Metal are grilles, and our second is panels. Grilles began the company, and panels give us the freedom to cut a design in a larger scale and bring it to life. But, did you know that we offer so much more than just those two standardized options? Our team […]

What’s even more on my mind than a big meal is how inspiring fall and winter designs can be. This was a beautiful table display that took my breath away last week in a […]

Holiday Wardrobe Essentials

The holidays are quickly approaching and you know what that means – fun and festive holiday outfits! Let’s take a break from metal today and dip our toe back into the world of fashion. When I am not working at Modern Metal, I spend my hours as a fashion stylist.   Shimmery gold and shiny silvers […]

There are no wrong turns…

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of grabbing lunch with Annie and her daughter Sophie, who is in her freshman year of college. We spoke about Sophie’s major and her interest in exploring other studies, which made me think more about how Modern Metal came to be, and how I got here as […]
