Not Your Basic Black

Black. It's timeless, it's classic, it goes with everything. And it has emerged as one of the hottest finishes for lighting, cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures, and decor pieces.

There are many ways to incorporate black into home decor:

  • Taking its cue from fashion, a completely black piece epitomizes classic style.
  • White and black offer a sleek and modern contrast.
  • Pair black with gold for a luxe style that is sophisticated and elegant.
  • Black mixed with organic materials and earth tones gives a raw, natural look.
  • Black accented by clear glass is sleek and modern.

Black-finished lighting is a trend with staying power. Here's our roundup of some of our favorite lighting fixtures and how they align with today's lifestyle design trends.
