Spectra Living & Tone finishes
A range of beautiful living finishes designed to age gracefully.
Curated for the Continental collection, Spectra Living adds a new dimension to the solid brass range including matt, lacquered, waxed and oil rubbed hand-finished patinas. Each only grows more stunning over time as daily use brings out subtle tones of brass and bronze to perfectly complement the timeless designs.
OPB • Oil patina bronze
MBB • Black bronze
RB • Regal bronze
SBL • Satin burnished brass
PBUL • Patinating polished brass
Spectra Tone applies a simulated metal finish through an electrophoretic process.
Two new Spectra Tone options for the Continental range; pearl lustre or hand polished nickel. When applied to brass these two finishes offer a luxurious warmth with hints of brass or a high shine with a reassuring depth.
PEN • Pearl lustre nickel
PN • Hand polished nickel
Care and maintenance
Spectra Living finishes are decorative and specifically designed to patina over time. Normal use and exposure to the environment will bring out the metal below the finish for a beautiful aged aesthetic.
The living collection comprises lacquered, unlacquered and oil rubbed finishes, all of which can be cleaned with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. The use of solvents, cleaning chemicals or abrasive products is not advised and will result in damage to the finish.
For lacquered and oil rubbed ironmongery, an occasional rub down with a quality beeswax polish is advised. For unlacquered options, we suggest a metal polish such as Brasso.
For the Spectra Tone finishes, regular attention with warm, soapy water will maintain appearance, with the periodic use of a quality metal polish.
