Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, which makes it very strong, and it won’t rust! The physical colour of brass is similar to gold, so brass used in non-metallic surfaces such as fabrics often looks the same as gold.
However, please note that not all of our brass coloured pendant lights are made of the actual brass metal - some are made of regular aluminium that is then finished or coated in a brass colour. So, please be mindful of the material that it's made out of because it will have a small impact on the longevity and aesthetic of the fitting. Brass made pendant lights are much more expensive than the common metal pendant finished in a brass coating colour. So as always, there is a trade off between price and quality but generally metal pendants fit the bill most of the time for most applications. Brass pendants made of actual brass metal are used in more high end contemporary and heritage buildings. In saying that, there are times when metal finished in brass can look just as good as a real brass made pendant.
Brass is Timeless
The colour brass can create an industrialised, authentic look as well as a new contemporary feel - it is incredibly versatile. Brass can be easily paired with a number of different textures and colours, including cream, white, gray, green, and almost any shade of blue.
Brass even pairs well with other metals and colours, including copper, chrome, stainless steel and nickel. Brass is a lot less flashy than gold, less dazzling than silver and is a subtle way to add a touch of glamour without going overboard. This means if you feel the need to redecorate in the future, you wouldn’t need to invest in new accessories, as brass will continue to complement any given interior choice.
Brass is Bold
Brass makes a bold statement in any space and becomes more impactful in a single, large dose. Try using a less conspicuous metal for small details and simple colour scheme throughout, leaving the brass element for one central, knock-out piece. Try a large pendant or chandelier for some wow-factor.
Strike a Balance
Adding a simple touch of glimmering metal can make a space infinitely and instantly more interesting. Stuffing a room full of metallics, on the other hand, can leave it feeling tacky and overdone. Work with metallics as subtle accents within a larger interior scheme. Accessories like pendant lamps, shakers and bar carts work effortlessly upping the glam in a room.

Brass adds a bit of dazzle to an interior space and can look very classy when done right. It is used in modern and traditional homes but generally brushed brass works for traditional homes whereas the "flashy" polished brass is used in modern homes. This is definitely a colour used to ignite your space in style.
