Brass is back in a big way, polishing up everything from furniture fronts to ceiling fans. It’s a welcome change from the last decade of cooler chromes and steels—and nothing like those flashy sprayed lacquer finishes of ‘80s yore.
Today’s brass is softer, warmer—buffed or hand polished or patina-ed. Adding a little (or lot) of brass—in the form of a library light, a bar cart , a porthole mirror, a chair frame—is like adding a glimmer of sun to a room. Motif’s curated collection is full of just such brass-tastic pieces.
