Brass accents in home decor is a trend that never ends. I have to wonder if it’s even a trend at all. The metallic element adds a bit of sparkle and history to its surroundings. Whether it’s polished for a high-glam effect or left tarnished for an aged patina, vintage brass is popular on Apartment Therapy Marketplace at all price points. The cute whale brass statue that currently lives on my coffee table is one of my own purchases from the Marketplace.

Certainly showier than a Kallax shelf unit, this brass and glass etagere is a glamorous way to display your treasures. The storage piece features five generously sized shelves and a wood base with a faux marble plaster overlay. The asymmetrical design is similar to Maitland Smith or Artedi designs, however this piece has no markings that confirm the maker. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $625.

I get a Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina vibe from this brass pendant lamp, which only makes me love it more. Imported directly from Denmark, this Mid-Century find has some minor signs of wear. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $250.

Calling all serious tea drinkers! This antique brass teapot will keep your tea hot all day long with its ornate stand and burner. The stand is approximately 9 inches high and about 9 inches wide. While there is some spotting on the finish of this vintage find, the price more than makes up for it. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $50.

You could pick up dramatic candle holders like these new from a department store, but you’d could pay twice as much. Made in Japan, this vintage set feels modern and fresh due to its height. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $70.

I can’t get over how sweet this vintage brass mother giraffe and her baby are. It’s a perfect gift for a baby’s nursery. Both giraffes are made of solid brass. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $36.

As someone whose mail perpetually lives on the dining table, this brass desk organizer isn’t just pretty, it’s a necessity. Reward yourself with stylish organization after finishing your spring cleaning. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $25.
