Brass beacons: lighting trend

Brass beacons: lighting trend

Over the past two years we have seen warm-toned metals such as copper, gold and brass making a strong comeback in interiors. Mellow and brushed brass was particulalry popular at this year’s trade shows, especially for lighting. Brass provides interiors with warmth and cosiness; perfect for fall/winter lighting. We highlight five lamps by five North American designers that show this material off to its full potential.
