Rising to the occasion, Karastan’s Titanium Collection satisfies a craving for contrast, with a fashion forward fusion of matte and metallic sheen finishes. Glamorous yet grounded by a carefully curated combination of both traditional and transitional patterns, look no further than the Titanium Collection for your metallic muse.
Traditional with a Twist

From luxurious leopard prints to striking zebra stripes, an addition of animal print to your décor can definitely liven things up!
