Matte Black

Friday, February 26, 2016 · Leave a Comment 

Throughout history, the color black has reigned as a classic symbol of elegance and professionalism. This once standard color is being given a modern twist, making it a trend in a fresh and unexpected way. By incorporating a matte finish, the classic color’s texture is changed to give it a smooth, velvety appearance, making it as inviting and tempting as a rich bar of dark chocolate. Having come from the default high gloss finish of past design, matte black is now sought after to transform even the most simple of spaces. The trend has grown so fast that it has moved from the confines of interior design options including appliances, faucets, and tiles, all the way to the automobile world as a unique, sleek, and classic new look for a car. While this fresh perspective is quickly spreading to all areas of design, matte black is a trend that is here to stay.
