Kingston Brass Features 3 Warm Brass Metals to Headline the New Year
2019 has already brought us several new interior design trends. With the new year underway, we observed the resurgence of vintage pieces, matte black, contrasting colors, and bold backsplashes, but most compelling is the return of warm metals.
For quite some time, finishes including polished chrome, stainless steel, polished and brushed nickel, and oil rubbed bronze dictated the interior design market. Fixtures featured in these bold cool and dark metals lured eyes with their unmatched intensity. Both highly-acclaimed for their abilities to centerpiece the home, the classic cool metals maintained an elegant gleam, while the dark metals added an extra dimension.
Nevertheless, with the rise of the new year, warm metals, and specifically brass, are back in town. Kingston Brass, dare we say it, specializes in the production of the finest brass around. Both constructed with and finished in brass, our fixtures feature top-of-the-line construction and equally as dazzling designs. In the year of 2019, let Kingston Brass bedeck your home in these fine finishes:
- Polished Brass (PVD). For those seeking the glisten of a pure metal, polished brass is a warm metal finish that maintains its sleek shine, excellent for creating conspicuous contrasts with colors such as navy, black, and dark grey. Unlike the other types, it is made with PVD, also known as physical vapor deposition, which is a metal finishing process that significantly increases the durability and wear-resistance of standard finishes on plumbing fixtures. Independent test laboratories have determined PVD to be up to 23 times more abrasion-resistant compared to chrome plating–the previous industry standard.
- Vintage Brass. For homeowners seeking a finish that is not so luminescent but still maintains a feeling of warmth, vintage brass is a top-of-the-line finish exquisitely constructed to elevate your home with an antiquated flair. It is erected from a polished brass origin but is darkened and brushed to give it its signature vintage vibe.
- Satin Brass. The perfect finish in between polished and vintage brass is the exquisite satin brass! Making a comeback from the early 90s, this finish is one to consider when designing your home décor. With similar pigment to its polished counterpart but with a more softening brush like its vintage counterpart, satin brass exemplifies the harmony of brilliance and composure with the ability to fit most home ensembles. This unique finish pairs well with most colors, either as a focal point or a supplementary enhancement.
With the arrival of 2019 and the approach of the sunny spring and summer months, warm metals are prominent within the interior design industry. Kingston Brass features three unique and charming finishes of the brass family that which vary in their pigment and shine in order to beautifully accommodate any and all styles of homes.
