If I Could Register Again — Copper Edition

Warm, welcoming, and suddenly, seemingly everywhere, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to declare copper the rose-gold of housewares. Copper lends itself to any décor or palette, whether your taste runs to cozy-cabin chic or stark minimalism. Plus, the metal plays nicely with others, from stainless to pewter, zinc, and brass. Here, a few of our key copper cravings.  

1. Forever perched at the top of registry wish-lists far and wide, the iconic workhorse gets a shiny — and extra-durable — copper base.
