Why Use Copper Products for Home Decor?

The use of copper in home decor has gained popularity due to its unique combination of beauty and functionality. Copper pieces add a touch of vintage charm to your home, creating a warm and inviting ambience. Copper products, such as jugs, carafes, decor plates, and ornaments, can effortlessly enhance the aesthetic appeal of any living space. What better way to add decorative pieces to your home than to choose pieces that are also versatile in their functionality. When using copper in home decor, it’s essential to strike a balance. Copper’s reflective surface can make it stand out, so it’s often used sparingly to avoid overwhelming the space. Additionally, copper develops a natural patina over time, which some people appreciate for its character, while others prefer to maintain the shine through regular cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions : FAQs

1. How often should I clean my copper decor pieces?

Our products are coated with a lacquer on the exterior, to protect the copper from oxidation and exude a shiny finish. As such, the only cleaning that is required for these surfaces is with clean water or a soft moist cloth. Do not use harsh cleaning agents or abrasive scrubbers. If, over time due to abrasion and wear & tear, the lacquer layer is worn off, the copper pieces will start to oxidise and develop a natural patina. This can however be easily cleaned to maintain the shine of copper. A gentle polish with a mixture of lemon juice and salt works wonders in restoring their luster.

2. Can copper decor be used outdoors?

 Yes, our copper decor items are suitable for outdoor use, thanks to a lacquered surface. However, if the lacquer wears off due to exposure to the elements, it may cause the copper to develop a natural patina over time, which only adds to its beauty.

3. Can I use my copper plate to serve food?

Our plates are made of pure copper and thus intended for a decorative use as charger plates. Copper reacts with the sugars and acids and as such, foods should not be directly served on copper plates. Our decor plates are however lacquered for a shiny finish, protecting the copper from oxidation. At most, dry foods like nuts can be served on the plates but in general, we advise not to consume food (especially citrus fruits) off the copper plates. 

4. Can I use my copper jug to store drinking water after it has been used as a vase?

 Absolutely! Your copper vase can safely double as a water jug. However, be sure that you are not using any additives or “flower food” in your vase, as the copper may react strongly with this. We recommend cleaning it thoroughly before using it to store drinking water. Simply let a mixture of a tablespoon of citric acid powder and warm water stand for max. 2 minutes and rinse out with clean water. Copper itself is anti-bacterial, which means that you will always get the cleanest water to drink that nature can offer. 

5. Are Forrest & Love products ethically sourced?

Yes, Forrest & Love is committed to ethical sourcing of material and supports fair trade practices. Our products are handmade by our skilled artisans using traditional methods of copper hand-working in India.
