Copper has become a classic in home goods for many reasons: It's both rustic and chic, classic and modern, and it pairs well everything. Even Martha Stewart is a fan, with a collection of pots and pans spanning many years. (Read all about her obsession here.) But it's not just about cookware—copper is making its way into other first-home essentials, from coffee makers to bowls to candle holders. And if you're set on creating the perfect modern registry, what better way to freshen up the classics than with a new-age material? As trendy as copper may be, we don't forsee the metallic fad dying off any time soon—which means your sure to love these shiny accessories long after the big day.
