If you look up the leading home décor trends from across the world right now, you may find that the monochrome deity of white-beige-taupe has been dethroned, at last, and it’s all about that subtle sparkleinstead. Burnished gold and brass accents have taken over the home and spread their shiny magic across furniture, rugs, tableware, barware, even table linen and soft furnishings. For this Diwali gifting guide, Lounge rounds up some beautiful objects that flaunt that glint of gold in an unostentatious, low-key way—and are, of course, all about good design.
