As early as 1400 BC, brass was developed and was found useful for helmets, pots, and utensils. While commonly used today in many applications ranging from machinery to musical instruments, brass also makes an ideal material for furnishings like counters and range hoods.
The beauty of brass lies in its lighter, more yellow hues. This results in a bright glow that radiates warmth. As with all specialty metals, brass can be left to develop its own patina and use patterns, which add to the character and charm of the finish.
