Using Brass Sheet Metal and Channels to Create Warm, Modern Interiors
There’s no denying that a minimalist aesthetic is again in vogue. Just take a look at the furniture from IKEA or the latest Apple handsets—cut with sleek lines rendered in silver or other metallic colors. Not surprisingly, this same style is often employed by interior designers for their clients’ homes.
However, a minimalist design often comes with a hint of coldness—probably the last thing a person wants for their home. Luckily, interior designers can create that cutting-edge look without the sterile feel, thanks to a certain alloy: brass.

Brass is an alloy made from combining various amounts of copper with zinc. This results in a beautiful new metal that sports a lustrous, golden color that reams of class and opulence. The alloy also possesses excellent malleability, allowing it to be flattened into thin brass sheet metal.
