This ain’t your grandma’s metal–brass is back, and we’re quite liking the look of this timeless finish in modern interiors. Paired with modern silhouettes, brass lighting is refined for today’s taste, rather than the hyper-floral, pink carpeted image that’s often evoked by the mention of brass fixtures.
Whether it blends in with a mid-century modern motif or provides a pop of glam to a more muted space, brass is one sassy addition to a room, and lighting is a great way to bring it in. We love it paired with white for a crisp, modern balance of hard and soft. In an eclectic space, it brings in vintage cues without going overboard. For clean, minimal spaces, brass can warm things up better than a silver/nickel finish. Check out a few of our favorite finds for working brass lighting into contemporary spaces:
