Brass is back, and in a big way. With its structural richness and subtle elegance,
the resurgence of brass is gaining momentum fast…
Pictured above, this lovely Art Deco coffee table is certainly a conversation starter. The warm glow of the brass is a perfect frame for the light emanating from the distressed mirrored top. It’s classic lines are simple, yet so incredibly elegant.
As a gorgeous wall accessory, the Sunburst mirror is a popular choice. This particular piece is French vintage in gilt brass. The Chiavari side chair is vintage Italian. The fabulous French Modernist console table is Lucite and gilt brass with glamorous lines and a Neoclassic flare.
According to House Beautiful, “There is a warmth brass gives an interior, whether it be a modern or traditional space,” Marisa Marcantonio of Style Beat says. “The golden hue of the metal provides a subtle, elegant gleam. It’s having a comeback because it mixes well with other metals and its patina gets even better with age.”
This wonderful French table showcases that subtle gleam, and beautiful aged patina. The antiqued mirror enhances the table’s element of vintage elegance.
According to Elle Decor, “Designers looking to the ’70s, it’s inevitable that brass and bronze will show up more—from accessories, to cocktail tables, to virtually entire rooms. Brass is the metal of the moment.” The ability of brass to mix in with so many different design elements makes it a highly covetable decorating must-have.
