Brass Interior Design: A Bold New Trend
A warm golden hue combined with retro charm – is there anything as appealing for interiors than brass? This timeless tone has made a comeback. More aged than gold and warmer than silver, mix-and-match it with other materials such as marble and wood for glamorous drama and luxe living spaces.
Take a look at some of our favourite interpretations of the brass interior design trend. From a grandeur staircase to a simple finishing touch, brass can be as bold – or as subtle – as you like:
Staircase in Shoreland, Chicago: Old charm fused with contemporary design
This grand staircase plays a central part in Studio Gang’s design to turn the Jazz Age hotel in Chicago into a modern residential building. The brass balustrade contrasting with the dark stairs hits the right note to add a touch of modern retro.

High-rise: Brass accents in a Chicago apartment by Catherine Wong.
It’s modern, it’s vintage, it’s glamorous. It’s a shining example of the brass interior design trend. We love everything about this Chicago apartment by Catherine Wong. Especially the living room storage bench with its accent doors made from raised perforated brass. A worthy centre piece in this very stylish space.
