One of this year’s hottest design trends is brass. According to Elle Décor magazine, “with its rich gleam and sculptural weight, this metal is experiencing a resurgence. With so many 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.”
Brass is luxurious when paired with gray. It looks radiant when mixed with white or ivory. And brass is dramatic when used with black. At Art Van Furniture, we have our finger on the pulse of home fashion. From brushed to polished, here are five touches of brass that will bring your home on trend with this year’s hottest metal.
In a matte-brass finish, the vintage-inspired pedestal table would make a rich addition to your living room. Use it beside an accent chair to provide a place to set your tea, or place a pair on either side of a sofa to form a traditional seating group. The piece is from the Marlow Collection, which offers a bold and stately display of modern furniture.
Also in a matte-brass finish, the Marlow Collection Drum Stool will jazz up your living or family room. With lattice style details around the side and a solid top, the piece would make a good side table, footstool or plant stand. Use a pair as a unique coffee table option. Or flip it upside down and use one to hold your knitting or magazine collection.
A brass lamp is a classic option for lighting. Our Roman Table Lamp, however, takes the traditional look and gives it a modern twist. With a contemporary drum-shaped shade and black weighted bottom, the piece has a contrast of colors and styles. The result is an expensive looking lamp at an affordable Art Van price.
Floor lamps can be a bit boring, but the antique brass and crystal accents of our Cashmere Floor Lamp give the piece a sophisticated feel. With a traditional style shade and brass accents, this lamp shines the light on itself, but you get to bask in its glory.
The most iconic piece of brass furniture is the brass bed. In a polished finish, it evokes the feeling of a cozy bed and breakfast inn. Our Jackson Bed fits any décor with its transitional styling that combines a traditional arched outer frame with a contemporary combination of scrolls. The look is classic yet fresh.
