Patine steel has a silvery-black appearance and was invented to match the appearance of old iron gates outside Italian villas. Each product is electroplated in nickel before being placed in a chemical bath to etch a beautiful black patina.


Features & Benefits

The patine steel finish is designed to evolve over time the more the products are touched. Natural oils and acids on our hands gradual wear away the black patina to reveal more of the medium warm satin nickel base.



Designed to match the appearance of iron gates, patine steel is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications and is a popular finish in Pittella’s Classical Collection.


Care & Maintenance

Clean with a soft cloth. The patine steel finish does not require chemicals, water or soap for cleaning.
