ICFF 2014: Gold & Brass

by Grace Bonney

Copper certainly had a moment at this year’s show, but gold & brass still reign supreme. Heavy brass desk accessories graced many a table at this year’s ICFF, but so did gold table legs, shiny brass pendant lamps and shelving brackets. My favorite version of this trend involved working brass or gold into furniture in unexpected ways, like the inlay in Asher Israelow’s dresser and the star chart table that everyone gathered around. Whether you’re looking for a giant pop or gold or just a little detailing, this roundup will have something for everyone. Hopefully silver will get its day next year…xo, grace

Suggested For You


  • I love Design Sponge! I am moving into a (at best) 400 square foot cabin in the woods. I have three cats who need their own little spots. I must have at least a double bed. The walls have cedar paneling that I cannot paint. Earth tones are not my thing, but I do like neutrals with pops of color–lavenders, greens, blues, and I love a bit of orange. I’m on a very limited budget. HELP! There is no closet, but there is a separate bathroom and a cute deck. I really don’t know what to do to make this seem roomy. Thanks.
