The patinated brass finish has been used for decades in furniture design, and is continuously used today due to the variety it’s various applications, timeless look and feel, and the solid control furniture makers have over its final effect. Here, you will discover a curated selection of patinated brass console tables, either in heavy or light coatings with both closs or matte varnishing.
Boca do Lobo‘s Sinuous console table features a slim base with elegant lines, and a black lacquered glass top which match patinated brass beautifully. The piece’s high gloss finish works wanders for the modern look.
The rule of thumb for patinated brass tens to be – The darker or thicker the acid’s coat, the darker other components should be. This means, if a modern console table has a heavy patina coat, with a dark effect, its table surface should too be dark (with black being a classic and a favourite).
This discernining wall supported console table on the other hand, maintains a light patinated coat for a young aging effect, but taking on a black table surface, ensuring the elegance that only the black and brass combination deliver.
Highly sculptural, the console table above resembles a true work of art, with its lines clearly molded manually to achieve a final shape. For simplicity, it is finished with a glass top.
The patinated look also works well with lacquered surfaces. Above, lightly patinated legs with notable texture suit the bright table top, and overall interior tone.
Another classic example by Taylor Llorente, the above console table sees a heavy patina coat, which eliminates any shine of golden tone from the brass underneath, yet maintains the metal’s texture, as well as the brush marks left naturally.
