You don’t need us to tell you that the killer lines and hushed materials like brass of midcentury design are having a moment. All but gone or relegated to steampunk design (RIP, thank you very much) for the past decade, brass is back and it’s never looked better — especially in small doses. The affordable alloy has crept into handsome adornments meant for everything from the ceiling to your pocket. We’ve assembled a collection that’s as easy on the eyes as it is the wallet.
