Trend Alert: Keepin’ It Brassy!

Brass is not just for doorknobs and switch plates.  Brass has always been associated with traditional design but now it is popping up in all genres of home decor. We took a quick look around our J Banks Retail Store and recently completed projects, and selected a few of our current brass favorites.

These brass boxes from our friends at Madegoods are chic and unique. The brass color adds warmth and a bit of elegance to the industrial chain link design.

Many of our favorite brass accents are lamps. We love that brass comes in a variety of finishes such as oil rubbed (left) and polished (right). You can completely change the look of a brass piece just by altering the patina, or finish color of the metal.

Designer Shelley Wilkins recently used the oil rubbed lamp pictured above in a residential project.

A staff favorite, this Nixon end table comes with a reversible top that is walnut on one side and orange lacquer on the other.

You may have also spotted this table in Andy Cohen’s Clubhouse on Bravo!

This gorgeous oven is in Villa Scuola, located on the Castello di Casole property.

Do you have a favorite brass item?  We would love to hear from you. Until then, “Stay brassy my friends.”

    Does that mean gold and metal leaf frames are coming back in vogue?
