Kitchen Trends: Enter the Brass Age

The cool metal tones (stainless steel, nickel, chrome, etc.) that have outsold all other finishes on everything from decorative hardware, to faucets and to furniture, have become so popular they have begun to look commonplace. 

Warmer brass finishes (along with gold, copper and bronze) have been moving in from the margins and are beginning to make a splash in high-end commercial projects and contemporary design.  Brass offers a compelling and intriguingly fresh look, especially with a brushed finish that is different enough from the polished brass of the 70s to look brand new!

... and celebrity icons, such as the beautiful Beyoncé, and fashion trends are also making waves to help catapult brassy gold looks into the limelight, and quickly captivating consumers’ interest.

 

 

It always takes a few years before new trends fully develop and become part of mainstream interior design, but brushed brass and warm gold looks are certainly gaining popularity.
