the bronze age
With its warm, golden-brown glow, bronze has been used in interior design for millennia. A little less in-your-face than gold, a bit more regal than silver, bronze accents infuse rusticity and Old-World charm. Contemporary pieces like accent tables and cabinets in this warm metallic tone can create a glamorous focal point in a living space. After all, inspiration is in the details.
