Promoting Wellness in the Home with Aged Brass Fittings

As many yearn for vintage and antique pieces with a sense of fondness, aged brass finishes can add a unique and personal touch to bathroom interiors.

Carefully considered design creates interiors that nourish the soul. With increased emphasis on mindful design, craftsmanship and use of the finest materials are key ingredients in the creation of exquisite interiors that elicit a calming and meaningful ambience. Vintage and antique pieces are particularly relevant, cherished for their ability to evoke schemes that are rich with character and induce a nostalgic sentiment, as well as for their sustainability. Honouring the allure of bygone days, our aged brass finishes bring warmth and unique personality to bathroom interiors, enhancing the sense of wellness.

Making your home a sanctuary with the design focusing on improving mood, health and wellbeing spans the centuries. The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui focuses on the flow of energy for harmony, the Scandinavian concept of hygge celebrates cosiness evoking contentment, while biophilic design encourages the use of materials that are inspired by nature and appeal to the senses to boost welfare. Throughout all of these movements, form and function take centre stage.

Beautifully crafted pieces made from premium materials are intrinsic to the quiet luxury trend, too. Renowned interior designer Jake Arnold predicts in a recent Vogue trend article: ‘In the same way a “quiet luxury” wardrobe is assembled, within design, there will be a continued emphasis on classic, investment pieces that you can build a room around. Pieces that are timeless, in classic shapes and silhouettes that can have many lives.’

With on-trend bathrooms showcasing palettes of warm neutrals or rich sumptuous hues, the aged patina of burnished brass resonates beautifully and infuses a timeless, lived-in appearance.

Interior designers are incorporating vintage and antique details into contemporary settings and aged brassware taps into that zeitgeist.

Answering the growing demand for warm, time-evolved and antique details, Samuel Heath now offers two beautiful brushed aged finishes, Antique Brass Matt and new Antique Brass Gloss, available across all key Samuel Heath brassware collections including One Hundred CollectionLandmark LMK IndustrialLandmark LMK PureStyle Moderne, Fairfield and Forme. Their rich brass tones feature darker accents to mimic an antique or weathered look, without having to wait for a natural patina to develop, and the choice of either a matt or gloss lacquered finish allows designers to select the most appropriate look for their interior schemes. The coatings of the pre-aged finishes ensure that designers can confidently specify them for bathroom schemes, safe in the knowledge that they will maintain their look over time. This also means that less frequent cleaning is required. 

As many yearn for weathered details with a sense of fondness, aged brass finishes can add a unique and personal touch to both traditional and contemporary schemes. A set of matching Fairfield aged brass taps and showers nods to a bygone era for a more classic aesthetic. Alternatively, a single Style Moderne basin tap within a powder room can add a subtle vintage undertone to a contemporary setting. The specialist finish is achieved by the artisan process of layering and blending surfaces, to result in a richly saturated, tonal effect. Read more on how we create the specialist finish here.
