While strolling the streets and taking in the sights of Paris and London, one cannot help but notice the lavish brightly shining gilded ornamentation that is fit for a King or Queen.  It's a gilding that exudes royalty and extravagance, be it old or new.  Not only found on architectural elements, gilding is brought inside and detailed on furniture.  I always love a little gold in a room - be it gilding or brass. It adds a layer of patina in what feels like history.  It's shine is pleasing to the eye and inevitably makes that piece more special.  Royalty!
