Brass side tables, and brass furniture in general, have become very popular in recent years. In this article we explain why brass metal is on the rise, where to buy brass tables and how to maintain them.

Why is brass so popular

Cold, monochromatic interior design is out and a warmer, more traditional style is here. With that shift, came brass.

Brass metal tables offer a combination of aesthetic appeal, durability, and versatility that make them an excellent choice for various settings. Firstly, brass has a warm, inviting color that adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space. Its golden hue brings a sense of luxury and can complement a wide range of interior styles, from traditional to modern.

In terms of durability, brass is known for its strength making it a great choice for table construction. Cast brass can withstand the test of time, maintaining its beauty and functionality even after years of use.

The versatility of brass metal tables is another significant advantage. Brass can be crafted into intricate designs and patterns, allowing for unique and customized table designs to suit any design aesthetic. Whether it’s a sleek and minimalist coffee table or an ornate dining table, brass is a great choice and has endless design possibilities.

Brass tables look fabulous with different materials such as glass, wood, or marble, making them adaptable to interior decors. The combination of brass with other materials creates a visually captivating contrast, adding depth and character to the overall aesthetic.

How to maintain brass side tables

Brass is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only occasional polishing to retain its lustrous appearance. It can be cleaned with a mild soap and water or a basic household cleaner. We recommend:

  • 7th Generation
  • Simple Green
  • Ammonia-Free Windex

A basic daily or after-use wipe down is generally enough to maintain the surface appearance and cleanliness of brass side tables. For a more in depth look at maintenance, you can read (or print) our Care Guide here.
