Black furniture pieces such as the Imola armchair always add a sense of elegance – but still invite you to snuggle up with a good read and a hot cup of tea.
From house facades to wallpaper and furniture: all-black interior is now a well-established trend among design experts and enthusiasts. The light-absorbing non-colour adds an elegant touch to any room.
Depending on your personal taste, you can either create subtle accents or bold statements. We’ve got some practical tips and unusual ideas to give you some inspiration.
Dark surfaces look especially appealing on glossy tiles or basins. If you want to go all out, you can even paint an entire wall black. This will serve as an ideal backdrop for mirrors and shiny details in gold or silver.
Black faucets have become a staple among bathroom interior designers. Variants with a matt finish are also low-maintenance, as water stains and fingerprints don’t show easily.
Want to keep your bathroom warm and cosy? Then you might benefit from a matching heater to complement your all-black interior. Italian manufacturer Tubes Radioatori has designed an electric radiator with a special twist: the Origami works just like a folding screen that can be set up anywhere.
To top it all off, the luxury brand Villeroy & Boch even offers a shower toilet in glossy black. The ViClean-I100 model is a great option for anyone who’d like to give their bathroom an extravagant look.
Non-colour shades are in high demand for kitchen installations this year. Next to countertops in dark marble, granite, and concrete, you can opt for black cupboards, built-in appliances, faucets, and sinks.
For an upscale finish, we recommend combining opaque elements with shiny, sparkling details such as handles or faucets made from stainless steel.
You prefer a warm and homely ambience? Just balance out your black interior with soft earthy tones and natural materials.

Lately, many well-known design classics have seen a comeback with a change of colour: black puts a modern spin on retro pieces, bringing out a sense of timeless elegance in contemporary homes.
The pendant luminaire Artichoke from Danish manufacturer Louis Poulsen creates an intriguing play of contrasts: black glossy panels are illuminated from within by the light bulbs placed at the centre.
If you’re looking for ways to turn plain walls into an eye-catcher, the QLOCKTWO 180 will definitely do the trick: its display spans 180 cm in height and width, with illuminated letters stating the current time against a black-matt background.
