All that glitters is not gold, and these days it’s more like to be brass, as the brass trend we’ve been seeing shows no sign of fading any time soon. And this designer couldn’t be happier about that. Brass can be ultra modern, but as one of the oldest metals it can also be very traditional and comforting. I for one would be ecstatic to open my front door every day to be greeted by this chic, shiny brass abstract sculpture of a console table.
But I’m also practical. When I’m leaving through said entryway, I love a mirror for a last-minute check, so this full-length faceted brass mirror nearby would also be handy.
One of my favorite brass pieces to use lately is the glamorous ‘70s-inspired Abbot dining pedestal by Bernhardt. It can be used singly in a small dining space or doubled up for a long dining table, suitable for maximum entertaining.
One aspect of the new brass trend is in kitchen and bath hardware. Left unlacquered, it aged beautifully in this jewel box of a guest bath.
I love how the softy antiqued brass pendants warm up this traditional kitchen by Sarah Richardson.
I’ve been seeing these all brass-clad kitchens by Amuneal in the design magazines, and I’m dying to install one in a project. Perhaps as a chic set-in wet bar. Wouldn’t that be gorgeous?
