Hello Glossers!

Looking for a glamorous and dramatic upgrade without too much glitz and glam? We are big believers in the "Less Is More" approach to wowing 'em. One way to do this is to opt for brass décor; a timeless and sophisticated alternative to gold. Decorate with just a few brass accents, or try a brass statement piece to add instant warmth and drama to a room. 

Our design team curated some gorgeous furniture and accessories that highlight the many ways to use brass in your home. From mid-century modern designs, to geometric patterns and accents -- brass can do it all. Come and explore our curated collection.


We are lusting after west elm’s Origami Side Table. With a striking design inspired by the art of paper folding, a beautiful antique brass finish, and a price-tag to die for -- we couldn’t love this side table more.

Truly inspired by the 70’s with its shiny finish and geometric design, CB2’s Alchemy Bed is as stunning as it is bold.

Looking for a more subtle and sophisticated take on brass? Try the Calvin Top Grain Chair from Kathy Kuo Home. The brass base compliments the black leather seat without overpowering it. And -- though we rarely recommend black leather -- this chair does it for us.

A chic and easy way to incorporate brass décor is with lighting -- and sometimes polished brass just works. The Polished Brass Tresor Round Pendant by Laura Kirar from the Well Appointed Home is an incredibly versatile piece. We love it in the kitchen or in a long hallway, any space that needs a bit of bling.
