What is Nickel?

Nickel is a silver metal with a warm golden tint. It is a pure stable element, resistant to corrosion, even at high temperatures. Historically, it has been used to plate other metals such as iron and brass to provide protection from oxidation.
Nickel was popular during the Art Deco era. Designers of this period favoured the silver-looking palette of nickel and chrome and preferred the corrosion resistant qualities of nickel.
Door knobs, cabinet pulls, candlesticks, mirrors, and all of the smaller home hardware items that give the finishing touch to a room, can make a big difference when it comes to interior design.
Nickel offers a softer alternative to chrome, with a warmer, antique tone. Perfect for period properties.
