Patina

A patina is a tarnish produced by chemical processes that form on the surface of many types of metals with use and time. A patina showing rich shades of browns and grays can take decades to acquire. Our specialty metals are living alloys and will patina and develop wear patterns. This is precisely why our clients choose our materials. Over time, they will change and develop a history as rich and unique as the space in which it resides. However, just like sterling silver, our products can be polished back to look like new.

At La Bastille, we utilize years of experience to achieve the desired level of patina, treating each project like a piece of fine art. Getting the exact level of a patina can be a difficult and painstaking process, but our methods are refined and exact. We offer a variety of options to compliment any interior space.
