A GUIDE TO OUR FINISHES

Please note this is for reference only.  As almost all of our products are finished by hand, natural variations will occur and will add a unique beauty to each piece.

In addition to the finishes in this document, we can provide bespoke finishes depending on your requirements, including antique silver, copper, a variety of golds, as well as matt and gloss black. We also offer other materials including shagreen and solid bronze.

If you can’t find the finish you’re looking for, please contact a member of the team to discuss your project requirements.




Metal Finish Options

Plated finishes
Plating is a finishing process in which a thin layer of metal coats a substrate, in our case brass. The process involved is for both decorative and practical purposes.

We offer a variety of plated finishes across our product range, allowing flexibility to suit the theme and colour scheme of any project. The functional benefits of plating are protection of the base metal and corrosion resistance.

‘Living’ finishes
Mid-antique brass and dark bronze are some of our most popular finishes both in the UK and globally. ‘Living’ finishes will naturally patinate over time and usage. This allows each piece to develop a beautiful and unique look, adding character to the design scheme.

Solid surfaces
These are where the surface is the base material, which is then polished or brushed. These include stainless steel and brass finishes.

We can offer solid surfaces with a lacquered finish; however, we don’t usually recommend this as they are more susceptible to scratching over time.



Other Finish Options

Leather and Shagreen
We only use the finest quality shagreen and bridle leather for our products, which is applied by highly skilled and experienced craftsmen in the UK. Both are sustainably and ethically sourced.
