Brass Is Back and It’s Here to Stay
That’s right, brass is back. It has been for a few years now, so it’s safe to say that brass is going to stick around for a while. As with most trends, it’s back with a twist–an update on the old standard that looks fresh and classy. The brass trend is the definition of transitional: it has that classic look and feel, but with a modern sensibility. This 21st century brass revival is simply beautiful, and we’re happy to welcome its warm tone back into our homes.
Here are some examples from our lighting lines.
We started to see gold tones gaining popularity a few years back. First, we saw it popping up in jewelry and other accessories, like gold flats, sandals, and even gold nail polish. Then the trend moved into home decor. You may have noticed brass bathroom fixtures like faucets and shower heads and gold toned flatware popping up at your favorite home stores. Now brass is everywhere, and we love it, especially as a handsome finish option from our favorite lighting lines.
By any other name…
The brass we’re seeing today comes by a few names and variations. You can find it being called any of the following names plus many more. Antique Brass, Burnished Brass, Antique Gold, Burnished Gold, Aged Brass, Vintage Brass, and the list goes on.
