It’s no secret that we like shiny things. We’re like Blue Jays. But also, nothing like Blue Jays (because we can’t fly. Definitely not because we’re not birds.) Have you ever wondered why we’re so attracted to shiny things, though?
Well, we know that gold, brass, copper, and other metals of a similar pedigree are beacons of wealth, luxury, and even good health. When we see gold and brass, we’re usually teleported to somewhere royal—like Prince Charles’s bathtub. And apparently, according to some research that involved children licking shiny objects, we also froth the gloss because of our innate desire for water. Boom. Weird science.
Drumroll, please. Without further ado, we’d like you to meet our new range of metallic pendant and wall lights. Now, we’re not suggesting that we locked up our dehydrated designers in a room full of shiny things and with no water. But we are implying that’s how we came up with these lights.
Finished in copper and brass hues, these things are ravishingly royal. And in this article, you’ll find the inspiration you need to use these beauties in your next project.
All that Glitters is Like Gold. And Brass and Copper, too.
You could lick the images on your screen because they look glossy and you’re thirsty. You could also just use these pictures to get your creative juices flowing.
As you know, brass and copper are classic and elegant. They’re eternal colours, which means that they transcend seasonal design trends. And the best thing? You don’t need to cram your rooms with these colours to make a meaningful impact. Use these brass pendant lights sparingly to add delicate accents to your spaces.
You can combine darker, moody hues with a splash of brass or copper to instantly elevate the sophistication of your spaces. You can even use these metallic lights to accentuate other details in your space, like the gold trim on your pillows or ornaments on your coffee table.
If your space features brass taps and door handles, you can stimulate subtle synergies by adding a brass pendant or wall light. And of course, the lights are no longer just, well, to light things but become a decorative element within the space.
Choose soft, neutral colours and natural textures to highlight the copper fixtures and create an air of excitement in an otherwise calm environment.
You can pair your metallic linear lights with concrete, stone, and even woods—brass works particularly well with blonde and yellow woods and copper with brown and red woods.
