Francois & Co. offers various surfaces made from the pure, malleable and ductile metal, Copper. Copper surfaces were first used around 9000 BC in the Middle East. Copper’s traditional and distinctive array of color from iridescent brown to near black and then to a greenish patina has long been coveted by architects and designers. Copper is a very popular material surface selection because of its durability, lightweight nature, corrosion resistance and the beauty of its natural patina. Copper’s prestigious appearance and ability to form into complex shapes makes it an exceptional choice for interior surfaces.
