Matte is the new black!
Black is a design classic! Though it doesn’t always appear in the same way. The current preference is for black with a matte finish, like the charred remains of a fire. A matte texture softens the hard appearance that black can often have. Allowing it to sit beautifully with organic raw materials like wood and copper. It also seems to evoke a sense of history and masculinity, reminiscent of Victorian times when gentlemen’s fashion was dominated by black. I really like the way the finish is being used unexpectedly with these products, bringing a fresh approach to a design classic.
