Surface Through Age

Patina is the wonderful finish that makes a surface look aged. It is a thin layer of some chemical ingredients that will oxidate and look appealing. Patinas can be used as protective covering to materials that would otherwise be damaged by corrosion or the weather.

Patina by De Castelli

Characteristic colouring is a profession itself that needs to be done very well, otherwise it won’t be appealing. One of the best companies for different materials in metal surfaces is De Castelli. The metal leaves below represent the ‘American vine leaves’ of which De Castelli created a ‘Vertical Garden’: a modular system for wall covering suitable for indoor and outdoor! The quality is absolutely stunning, view the amazing collection of De Castelli finishes here.

Contemporary Copper

The choice of the natural materials in warm color palette makes these pieces beautiful for outdoor use: from reddish-brown to bronze to green. If you don’t like the elegant French looking furniture, you’ll maybe like the more contemporary look of De Castelli furniture.

Hopefully we inspired you to spice up your garden with green Patina details. One more last tip to keep the bronze and copper in shape; clean these patina surfaces with cold water and non-abrasive or aggressive liquid detergents. Apply with a soft cloth ;).
