No-one who is interested in interior design can afford to ignore black matt. This light-absorbing non-colour dazzles in any environment and refines the ambience of all sorts of different interior styles, whether in the living room, kitchen or bathroom. Discover your options here.
Are you after a touch of homeliness in your living room as well as elegance? You can achieve this with a combination of striking black details, flowing forms and soft fabrics.
Armchairs and sofas in black are conquering interior design spaces. The Imola armchair available from Boconcept in black, for example, is made to lend stylish warmth and comfort to an elegant ambience.
You can also make a statement with pieces like the CIRCLE Display from Aesthek.
Dark colours are gaining ground in the bathroom, too. From washbasins and fittings to heaters, there are no limits to your creativity. If you are daring, you can even paint the walls black and opt for dark, natural stone tiles.
Black, anthracite and grey have also become a much-loved colour scheme in kitchens this year. Dark countertops made of marble, granite or concrete have been popular for some time. Now this fashionable colour is also taking over panels, built-in appliances, fittings and sinks.
For a hint of luxury, why not combine dark elements with metallic details in the form of stainless steel fittings like Tara from Dornbracht?
If, on the other hand, you prefer something more friendly and homely, mellow earth tones and natural materials create a visual counterpoint.
For fans of black kitchens, Reform has a new kitchen design created in collaboration with renowned architect Jean Nouvel. The result is an extravagant monochrome kitchen design in reflective materials.
Even familiar design classics are increasingly being given a makeover in black, enhancing living spaces twice over.
One of these is the Artichoke pendant lamp by Poul Henningsen. With a shimmering black surface, the lamp creates an extraordinary lighting ambience in the living room.
There is also now a black matt lacquered version available from String Furniture, which really is a must for lovers of the colour black.
In black, light switches and socket outlets also form stylish focal points on your walls:
The Gira Studio design line even combines angular and round components.
If you prefer classic shapes, you’ll find a timeless alternative in the Gira E2 design original in black matt.
If you’re looking for smart operating elements in black, the new Gira pushbutton sensor 4 that allows you to control up to eight functions is a good choice for you.
Both design lines offer an incredibly versatile range of configuration options thanks to Gira System 55. This modular switch concept allows you to combine different inserts with more than 300 individual functions in a uniform frame and gives you the flexibility to exploit the full diversity offered by intelligent building technology.
In living rooms, bathrooms and kitchens, black as a non-colour directs the focus on form and functionality. This is how black furniture and interior design ideas can combine minimalist sophistication with timeless class.

Switching without a switch, using digital surface instead. The Gira System 3000 touch top unit combines the standard "on" and "off" functions with a dimming function: a quick touch or swipe is enough to carry out slight adjustments.
With its streamlined minimalist aesthetic, the timeless and original Gira E2 design line is the perfect complement to a range of interior styles. Choose between shatter-proof UV-resistant plastic variants in pure white matt, pure white glossy, black matt, aluminium (varnished) and anthracite, or stainless steel.
Gira System 55
Thanks to the Gira System 55, you can easily find switches and socket outlets that match your personal style. It allows you to freely combine or exchange frames and inserts, just like a modular assembly kit. Six design lines with more than 90 frame designs offer countless options for any interior.
Stand out. Dare to try something new. Combine classic and avant-garde elements: the Gira Studio design line adds a modern edge to many different interior styles. With this line, Gira has once again created an innovative concept that emphasises aesthetics as much as functionality. Square and round. Black in black, white in white, or maybe a contrast of black and white? It's up to you to set the tone at your home. As a surface-mounted variant, the Gira Studio design line often serves as a visual highlight on walls in loft apartments.
