Like everything in design, things fall in and out of favor with alarming regularity. But if you live long enough, you’ll see trends come back into popularity with new interpretations. I’ve been seeing a lot of polished brass showing up in interiors lately. My first reaction was, “What the hell is going here?!?” Flashbacks to all the horrid brass + glass awfulness that was all the rage in the 1980’s started bombarding my sensitive designer brain. But I, Jennifer Gustafson, who would have certainly thrown up in my mouth a little at the sight of any polished brass not that long ago am coming around. The reinterpretation of the much maligned metal in modern interiors has converted me from a hater to a lover. See what I mean?
