After attending “What’s New What’s Next” at the New York Design Center recently, I came back with hope that, yes, COLOR IS BACK!  I love what I am seeing everywhere from rugs, to fabrics, to upholstery and even lighting.  Color is back.

In this great video segment by Editor At Large, Cecil Adams and I talk about how all of this color needs warmer metal tones to support it.

So there in lies the story behind this post, “50 Shades of Brass”.  Take a look HERE.

 

After all, there are too many shades of our favorite colors to count.::5o Shades of Red, 50 Shades of Orange and even 50 Shades of Gray.  (I couldn’t resist).  Brass and Gold shades are no different.  With everything from bright, shiny, bold brass, to elegant gold leaf, to warm, burnished brass – there is something for everyone and every space.

I believe that not only is brass back, honestly it never left.  For Currey & Co. brass has always been a staple.  I remember a few years ago when I wanted to use a brass fixture, no one seemed to have one.  Everything was silver or chrome or black and I was able to find what I wanted with Currey. Here are a few of my favorites and a few sneak peeks of new introductions for High Point Market as well::
