Lately, in the interior design world, there've been rumblings that the unthinkable is happening: brass is back. Is it true? Only time will tell. Though I'd never thought I'd see the day, I have been coveting a few brass items as of late. One in particular is this Brass Urchin Accent ($26), which Jamie Meares of Furbish featured on her blog (and is selling in her shop). A little "urchin super model," as she calls it, I can handle, but mirrors framed in a heavy dose of the dated metal or coffee table bases born of a bounty of brass? I'm not sure I'm ready for that.
In an effort to be a trooper of this possibly new old trend, I've rounded up a few brass — not silver- or gold-plated brass but pure, unadulterated brass — items that do get my stamp of approval. Check them out below.
