The plain brushed effect is a neutral option from our sumptuous Royal Florentine range, available in brushed silver or bronze. The Royal Florentine range of wastepaper baskets are handmade in Italy using traditional gilding techniques from the cradle of the Renaissance. The plain brushed effect will compliment a strong background, beautiful as part of a traditional design scheme featuring metallic finishes. It is made from lightweight, practical organic melamine for ease of use.

Please note : Due to the delicate nature of the silver leaf and the hand making skill the final finish is not uniform and variations will be visible.

Matching Tissue is available.

Secrets of Florentine gilding - Our Florentine range of bins, tissues & trays are made in Florence, Italy, and their style is inspired by this great city. We work directly with a tiny fourth-generation family business. They use the same traditional technique of gold-leaf gilding that decorated the opulent palaces of Renaissance Florence.

Applying gold leaf requires incredible skill and time. The leaf itself is so fragile that it cannot be handled with bare hands. Learning to apply it can take many years, but the results are beautiful, transforming objects into glowing works of art.

They use a unique style which is the combination of gold leaf painting with fine hand decorated Italian paper in designs which reflect opulence and glamour of the period. The effect is brings a softness to the collection but with all the glamour.

All wood used is sustainably sourced.
