The ideal is to choose some focal brass elements that contrast with the rest of the furniture, creating points of light and attracting the eye. Furthermore, you need to choose the color and finish of the brass carefully based on the style and tone of the environment. For example, polished brass fits well with a modern and minimalist style, while satin or bronzed brass goes well with a vintage or rustic style.
