Brass is Back!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be dishing on our favorite trends this year. We keep up with top interior designers and home decor magazines to keep our pieces fresh and on-trend. Today we’re talking all about brass, which is back in a big way and was cited by House Beautiful UK as a top trend for 2017. Ousting copper as the metal of choice this year, brass is a classic finish that lends itself perfectly to the traditional, the modern, and everything in between.

Take one step into Cottage Grove Vintage Market these days and you’ll have no trouble spotting this trend in trays, bookends, boxes, baskets, and our personal favorite--LAMPS. Here’s a few of our favorite brass finds in the shop right now…


If you’re nervous about styling with brass, try mixing it with other finishes like marble, wood, and rich, warm textiles to keep your space soft and inviting. Or, snap a few photos of your space and bring them to us! We love to share ideas and suggest pieces that will keep your home contemporary, yet timeless.
