What are “Leaf” finishes?
“Gold beating,” the technique of producing metal leaf, has been used for over 5000 years.” Gold beating is also called “gold leafing,” and this process yields metal that has been hammered into fine wafer-thin sheets.
Today’s artisans are experimenting with a variety of metals to custom design unique lamps and light fixtures featuring exquisite and durable Gold Leaf, Silver Leaf and Champagne Leaf finishes.
