During the 1980’s and early 90’s, brass was the gold standard for hardware in the home. Shiny gold door knobs and chandeliers were the go-to. Over the years the gold look was replaced by Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze faucets, fixtures, lighting and pulls – but today, a comeback is in the works. We’ve seen a resurgence of brass among the trendsetters in design, gracing the pages of Traditional Home, home shows and the work of interior designers over the last couple of years. This resurgence is hitting the mainstream, with leading manufacturers of faucets, fixtures, hardware and lighting generously adding to their line with offerings from Polished Brass to Brushed Gold and Champagne Bronze. Be clear: this is not the 90’s brass. It is a softer, lighter gold – a more modern twist to the classic color.
At MirrorMate, we’ve been on the leading edge with a range of styles in our growing category of Gold mirror frames, including a number of recent additions this year and last.
While traditional golds still grace the line, these new golds are transforming the way we think of gold and bringing a modern look to a classic finish. View the entire Gold offering of MirrorMate’s retro-fit mirror frames here.
