Get the Look: 34 Brass Accents

Brass made a comeback a few years ago, and although copper is the metal of the moment (yes, I’ll roundup copper goodies for you soon), brass shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, it’s creeping even deeper in the house. In addition to wall sculptures and sputnik chandeliers, faucets have gone brassy. Bits of brass are popping up in bathrooms and kitchens. Today I’m working on a brass in the kitchen post for Lamps Plus, which I’ll supplement with a Montage here on StyleCarrot. Doing things backwards, I put together this roundup of brass furnishings, lighting, accessories for today, in honor of “What’s New, What’s Next” at the New York Design Center.

NYDC invited me to be a blogger ambassador for the program, which takes place on Sept. 19.  “What’s New, What’s Next” showcases new ideas, materials, and products that will soon debut at NYDC. This year’s blogger involvement includes a promotion on Pinterest, which we all know I love. The Arteriors andirons (#10) is the inspiration for this post. My collage (products 1-10 here) will be on display during the event.

Here are 34 brass accents, including furniture, lighting, home accessories, desk accessories, and brass jewelry.

Get the Look: 22 Sconces that Stretch

I’m trying to come up with a spot in my apartment where I could install one of these super long-armed wall lamps. I’m over the industrial factory look (for my own space anyway). I like the bare bones minimal ones and also the Italian vintage styles from the ’50s, though I fear they’re a bit on the whimsical side for me.  I think #15 is my favorite. Maybe in the family room, over the sofa? That room could use a little architectural-like interest. It’s much more practical than an annoying floor lamp.  Many of these are pricey; the style hasn’t been knocked off  in a frenzy by the usual suspects yet, so I didn’t really find any truly “low” options.

Idea: Silver Tipped Bulb

I was catching up on my perusal of decor blogs when I saw this really cute light fixture this morning – actually an ingenious DIY idea – on Door 16.  You may have seen it already, since she posted it in January, but I somehow missed it until now.

This is one of those ubiquitous brass sconces found in many an old house (and all my college dorm rooms). Anna spray-painted the brass glossy white, for a porcelain-like appearance, then added an oversize silver-tipped bulb from 1000Bulbs.com. Totally cute. Makes me wish I had an ugly sconce to transform.
