frees the piece of furniture from dense structures, enabling the appearance of pieces with a clean design that
they easily fit into all kinds of spaces.

  • Polished Brass Finish

After molding the piece to be used in the furniture.
To obtain the polished brass, it is a manual process of polishing, using special high brushes
rotation and polishing paste that allows a first finish, removing scratches or slight imperfections

It is a manual process of work and visual inspection. After that, the piece is ready to be polished
(where it will gain the shine) through another polishing operation, but with another kind of more sensitive brush,
also a high rotation and with the use of special polishing pastes.

  • Old Brass Finish

The finishes have these names because they convey an aged look to the piece. With the copper base,
brass or silver, they are indicated for pieces that need to highlight the high and low relief, or that need
look old.

to the chemical process of finishing and consequent protection

  • Brushed Brass Finish

achieve the characteristics suitable for the success of superior treatments.

To give the brass a brushed appearance, a sanding operation is performed creating a pattern of very fine lines,
vertically or horizontally. Many products are then sealed with a protective coating (varnish or lacquer) to
avoid wear and tear. However, no finish lasts forever and eventually the brushed finish
may be damaged, attention should be paid to the strength of the protective finish.
