If you are thinking of refreshing your décor with a touch of gold and chic, you should strongly consider brass in your home. There are all kinds of brass accessories that provide an artistic and luxurious touch, which you can incorporate into your home beautifully.

Brass is a material that has been used since the dawn of time, due to its deducible appearance and malleable texture. It is composed mainly of copper and zinc and its colour varies from yellow to pink depending on its composition. It is the only alloy that imitates gold, and likes to be worked, bent, hammered and polished, to produce creations of stunning precision and beauty.

Why Brass? 
Brass, a noble material at the heart of a growing interior design trend:

An indispensable partner in the art of decoration, brass plays a dominant role in interior design. It is characterised by its resistance to corrosion, its ease of maintenance and the trendy touch it brings to the rooms it decorates. Thanks to these versatile features, brass has been able to invade our interiors with refinement, in the form of lights, candleholders, mirrors, wall sconces or simple furniture ornaments, bringing softness and elegance to spaces!

Brass can be combined with many different materials, creating a baroque atmosphere when combined with velvet, and a chic décor when combined with marble. If there is a winning duo, it is undoubtedly that of marble and brass, this combination brings a contemporary touch to every room it decorates. Bringing luminosity to dark spaces and sublimating light spaces, brass is everywhere (bathrooms, kitchen, living room, bedrooms...), where it is, it is displayed with style, fits to all rooms and to the majority of decoration styles, whether they are classic or more contemporary. This makes brass truly timeless.

Brass can be perfectly integrated into all styles of decoration:
The leading material is an ally of the Art Deco style, it gives a chic and neat result when incorporated in a contemporary style with neutral tones, and brings a vintage touch when brushed, it has also managed to make itself appreciated in the Neo art deco which is very trendy and finally, it is ideal for a cosy style of which it accentuates the features more. It is easy to imagine brass in a minimalist interior as well as in an eclectic style, but today designers are revisiting it in a contemporary way and playing with the diversity of brass objects to introduce it into rooms in a refined way. When the brass item is handmade this adds to the originality and beauty of the creation.

The place of brass in Moroccan arts and crafts:
Brass occupies an important place in Moroccan brassware, which in turn leaves an appreciable trace in the Fesi art craft in particular, and Moroccan in general. Brassware is part of the heritage of the spiritual city of Fez, also present in Marrakech, and has always fascinated visitors to the ancient Medina. Brass in Fesi brassware can be found in various forms: teapots, trays, kitchen utensils, chandeliers... Moroccan craftsmen deliver unique pieces, of an inexhaustible creativity, with an outstanding know-how transmitted from one generation to another.

Brass and Yachting:
Brassware has been taken to another level of personalisation by reinventing yachting furnishings, bringing a touch of fascinating beauty and originality to yachts, private jets and luxury trains. The brass work used in this design gives rise to works of art incorporated into furniture as simple ornaments, or as handmade decorative utility items.

The luxurious Orient Express train also relies on brass in its stunning interior design, for a vintage style that emphasises the cultural heritage of the East.
