Heavy metal: copper

Written by: Christina Kleiner

Copper has played a prominent role in the building process for thousands of years. Dating all the way back to ancient Egypt and early Roman times, copper was used to adorn everything from temples to cathedrals. A great conductor of heat and electricity, builders have used it for years to wrap wires and create piping for plumbing purposes in home construction. Today, people are choosing to incorporate the beautiful patina of copper into the design of their homes. Its signature reddish-brown shine makes copper a perfect choice for nearly every design aesthetic, from contemporary to traditional.
