All about the Brass

Interior design at the moment is all about the brass.


If you’ve spent any time on Pinterest or interior design blogs recently, you’ll have heard people talking about the brushed brass trend. Brushed brass was a staple of 80’s interior design, famed for its luxurious, warm and opulent appearance. All of these qualities make brass an ideal metal for decor, especially when it comes to commercial spaces such as bars and restaurants.


Here are some ways the brushed brass look is incorporated into interior design:


Bar and Tabletops: Implement brushed brass finishes for bar tops and tabletops. This can be achieved through the use of brushed brass laminates or metal cladding. The matte finish helps reduce glare and provides a stylish and inviting surface for patrons.


Bar Facades and Kickplates: Apply brushed brass finishes to the front of the bar counter, kickplates, and other visible surfaces. This adds a touch of luxury and draws attention to the bar area.


Furniture Frames: Choose furniture with frames or chair and stool legs in a brushed brass finish. This can include dining chairs, lounge seating, and other pieces to create a unified design theme throughout the space.


Lighting Fixtures: Integrate brushed brass lighting fixtures over the bar counter and dining areas. Pendant lights, chandeliers, or wall sconces with brushed brass finishes can enhance the ambiance and contribute to the overall design aesthetic.


Cabinet and Storage Hardware: Use brushed brass hardware on cabinets, drawers, and storage units in the bar and restaurant. This includes handles, pulls, and knobs, contributing to a unified and stylish design theme.


Accent Walls or Features: Consider incorporating brushed brass in accent walls, architectural features, or decorative panels. This can add a focal point to the space and create a memorable visual impact.


When implementing the brushed brass look in bars and restaurants, it's important to balance the use of materials and finishes to create a cohesive and inviting atmosphere.
