Metal Revival: The Return of Brass & Copper in Modern Interiors
After its glory in the 1970’s, brass is now making a comeback in current interior trend. Along with other warm metallic substances [copper and bronze], designers are making various products using brass as the main material. This trend is happening because people nowadays prefer products that evoke their sentimental feelings. And vintage pieces or handcrafted products made from brass are usually unique with their own story, character and craftsmanship.
Brass and copper are the perfect metals for adding an element of luxury, timelessness and artisanship into 21st century interiors. A design scheme that combines a mix of natural materials, clean modern lines and monochromatic color schemes enhanced with small injections of warm brass and copper is indeed a current favourite.
In a traditional setting, brass is the characteristic of a quality piece of furniture. In more minimalist design schemes, copper adds romance. Both metals are the perfect partner to other natural materials, like wood and marble. Along with copper, brass adds a new dimension and character to our interiors.
