ICFF 2013 Trends: Brass & Gold

by Grace Bonney

There hasn’t been an ICFF in the past few years where gold & brass didn’t make a big appearance. And really, if it keeps popping up in gorgeous modern versions like these, I’m totally fine with that. Last year the brass felt a tiny bit rougher and more patina-ed, but this year designers seemed to really embrace shine. From glittering chandeliers to tiny gold perforated baskets, there was something gold and brassy for every style. Here are my favorite 15 pieces from the show…xo, grace
