Nothing goes out of style forever. Case in point: brass. Having a bad rap after the 70’s due to non-tarnish coatings that eventually wore away, brass cabinet hardware is back, but in softer finishes. Historic reproductions, hand applied antique finishes, textured surfaces and living finishes are a few examples shown. Of course, a living finish is what brass is all about. The only problem, traditionally, is that brass requires polishing.
T-bar handles, bin pulls, knobs and footed handles can be seen here with some of the new finishes. The shiny is gone! The new look extends to recessed pulls and fancy hinges, too. Sources are also listed below for easier online shopping.
