The English Tapware Company know the beauty of uncoated brass, which is becoming increasingly popular as the selected finish for kitchen and bathroom tapware and fittings.
April 3rd, 2017
As designers and home owners increasingly desire natural looking finishes in their homes, and come to embrace the integrity of natural objects and processes, bare, uncoated brass finishes have seen a surge of popularity in recent years. In line with the values of the Japanese aesthetic of wabi sabi – the beauty of natural imperfection – bare brass has become the finish de rigueur for discerning fitting design.
Escaping its traditional station of utility – brass is now featured centre stage in a variety of commercial, residential and hospitality projects; being properly recognised as an artisan product that sits harmoniously with other natural materials such as timber and stone.
As a preferred metallic finish, bare brass is able to hold its own with the strong colours emerging in modern interior schemes. Indigo blues and vivid greens can give rich warmth to an interior when paired with brass fittings and fixtures. In outdoor kitchens & shower areas, on the patio, by the pool or by the sea, brass ties the outdoor natural fitting effortlessly into the landscape.
When specifying brassware, it must be appreciated that all brass is not created equal. The English Tapware Company offers the most premium and high-grade brass options throughout their entire range, including the Perrin & Rowe tapware and accessories brand, Hawthorn Hill towel warmers, Armac Martin cabinet handles, and Frank Allart door hardware. The beauty of brass means that quality fittings will mature naturally over time, developing the patina and unique character reminiscent of old brassware, serving as an evolving reminder of celebrating a life lived well.
