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.

Brass design trend is on the menu for restaurant spaces

The renovation of the Tilbury Hotel by Sydney design firm Luchetti Krelle turns this establishment into a relaxing vibrant space without compromising on its simple classic style. The use of brass in tandem with the patchwork ceiling creates a sense of identity and fun to the restaurant.

Brass wire mesh makes retail spaces shine with space and light

A continuous, modular framework made from brass wire works in harmony with the oak floorboards and marble counter blocks in this Sulwhasoo Flagship Beauty/Spa shop in Seoul, Korea. Designed by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office, it’s a showcase for the versatility of brass in interiors and how well it works with so many other materials.

Another retail project using brass wire mesh is a patisserie in Shenzhen designed by Shanghai studio LineHouse. The brass cage-like structure adds an industrial edge, with colour and light shining through into the shop.

Oriental art deco drama is dish of the day

Designed by Paris-based architects Emil Humbert and Christopher Poyet, the design of Song Qi Chinese restaurant in Monaco combines elegant design with art deco drama.

Brass bars surrounding the centre table are complemented by refined decorative details throughout the restaurant to bring a sense of prestige and exclusiveness.

Brass design trend: Why use brass in interiors?

  • Brass can oxidise or tarnish over time, giving it a distinct weathered look – just one of this material’s charming characteristics
  • Brass has excellent corrosive resistance
