I recently shared my favorites for copper, but lately, I have found myself equally enamored with all things brass. Beautiful, classic and enduring, here are some of my brass picks for in and around the home. XXJKE
Kitchen, Dining, & Bar
For the table, I love this hand-forged brass serving set, coffee/tea scoop and ladle, all from Spartan Shop. Also great: these brass cylinder salt and pepper shakers from Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, and these brass chopstick rests, a collaboration between designer Oji Masanori and 115-year old Japanese foundry Futagami.
And in the kitchen and bar, I adore this Japanese aged brass knife block from Nickey Kehoe, this brass crest bottle opener from Fort Standard, these round glass bottles with brass stoppers from Arteriors Home, and this perimeter tray in walnut, brass and white marble, also from Ladies & Gentlemen Studio.
Home & Office
Also for the office: this beautiful solid brass pen and all brass pencil case from Kaufmann Mercantile, this simple brass pencil sharpener and adjustable brass pencil sharpener, both from Dux, these brass and steel scissors, this brass container, and these brass hued small and large clips from Danish design house HAY, which could easily double for use in both the office or kitchen.
For other everyday objects, I like this simple yet elegant handmade brass money clip and hand formed brass key ring, as well as this brass key ring compass, all from Kaufmann Mercantile. And as the perfect vessel: this Moroccan brass dish from Nickey Kehoe.
