More than modern

It’s true: matte black has been a cornerstone of the latest contemporary and industrial modern design trends for years. Its versatility brings its own brand of “wow” to a host of today’s most popular designs as well, from trending styles like Farmhouse and Art Deco to more traditional Craftsman and Victorian decor. Matte black crosses style boundaries by effortlessly merging the modern with the classic, the soft with the shocking and even the feminine with the masculine. The possibilities are endless.
