Trend Alert: Brass Accessories & French Decor

by |

When it comes to home decor trends, we’re always looking to embody la dolce vita! The combination of French chic decor with brass accents results in a look that’s both timeless and tasteful. French country style embraces all things rustic and antique while still accenting with bold and ornate details. Where better to find these fun and bold accents than with a bold and brass piece!

To truly embody that French-chic style, start with basic pieces that encompass the simple countryside aesthetic. Think dated furniture and effortlessly simple materials. Clean, bright linen and simply aged wood are iconic for the French style. We love a classic silhouette like the Jonathan Charles caned Bergere chair. For a more timeless look, try one with an oval back. Another option for French style seating is the Carver armchair. Set a few of these around a classic wood table for a simple and chic setting.

To accent the classic French look, bring in some bold brass accents. The contrast of the light wooden pieces juxtaposed to shining brass pieces is truly stunning. If you see more French furniture in your space, try a brass-finished side table or accent piece to balance out the traditional look. We love the brass details on the Jonathan Charles dark santos end table as well as the bold statement of the Currey & Company Rasi stool.

If your home style tends to lean towards the more modern, then brass pieces are the perfect fit for your space. Main furniture pieces like coffee tables can truly set the tone for the entire space, so make sure the one you select truly speaks to the style you’re going for. We love a mostly glass table to open a room and let the details shine their brightest. Go for a distressed coffee table to create the illusion of a larger space and let other elements take center stage. To create more space in a smaller room, nesting tables are an ideal option. Try Chelsea House Home's bronze nesting tables to fill a space with more accessibility and functionality.

Brass accents are also a great option for an empty wall or space in your house that you’re not sure how to fill. Give your space functionality and style with an etagere. Regina Andrew's Hoop Etagere fills a space with elegance and the ability to accessorize with plenty of options. If you’re hesitant to jump all in to the trend, start with a few accent pieces like the brass Bedouin bowl or Jonathan Charles' Zebrano mirrorl.


This trend is all about pairing the unexpected together for the ultimate combination that will truly stand the test of time. Bringing together the timeless nature of French style with bold brass accents results in a look that is truly the crème de la crème!
