a 1950's Italian hammered bronze sconce, via House BeautifulOnly a few would argue with me that if there were a synonym word for Glam that would be Brass. I know that finishes in a decor would depend on what environment you are willing to create. In a farm house you may probably find chrome or brushed chrome instead of brass? But for environments or atmospheres where a dose of sophistication is required you probably would end up with some brass thrown in. It's a classic!
