Trend Watch: Matte Black
Matte treatments have taken black to new levels of sophistication. The automotive industry led the way with sueded surface treatments several years ago when they applied flat paint to sports cars and high end luxury vehicles. The result definitely turned heads because it was so unique. The cosmetics uses chalky looks to create edgy graphic effects. Now the trend is
appearing in home decor in everything from textiles to appliances. I especially like the contrast of glossy and matte finishes in kitchen design, as shown above with the flat black counter tops and high-polish cabinets.
