So brass is back in decor, has been for a little while and becoming more widely noticed. If you’ve missed it or been reluctant to introduce the warm metal finishes to your home don’t be frightened. This isn’t a tribute to bad brass in bright and shiny plating like entry-level, home builder grade, fixtures or your grandmother’s shiny candlesticks;) Using brass in your home can be inviting, trendy, warm, and provide a nice pop of contrast against other brights or just simple whites.
Here are a few examples we thought were well done.

I’d like to order an extra battery-pack for the Baluster Antique Brass Cordless Lamp. I don’t see that option on the website. Am I missing something? Thanks.
