Furnishing in black and white.
“What is opposite is reconciled, from things in contrast the most beautiful harmony is born, and everything is generated through contention.” Heraclitus
Black and white symbolize an original contrast. But if we look just a little beyond, we can discover that they develop a balance between themselves that generates a great visual harmony and a beautiful vibration.
This trend represents a precise stylistic choice especially if we talk about design. And that stimulates our aesthetic sense in a specific direction: to a formal cleanliness and to the search for a refined elegance that knows how to dialogue with the essentiality and planning of our living spaces, beyond any fashion and trend.
The rule is that the opposite poles attract each other. It is true for physics, but it is also true for people and for the interior living where the skilful combination of light and dark is recomposed in a balance that is never equal to itself and it is always renewed.
WE can choose a total black and white look or we can carefully insert some white or black pieces in a scenario which is perhaps dominated by color. Someone prefers black and white in a optical declination. Some others are purist instead: only white or only black.
Each style favors the preference for black & white: whether it is classic, contemporary, industrial or minimal, it makes no difference. Black and white redefine the character of furnishing elements and objects regardless of their style. The elegance of black and the purity of white declined on the various materials, on different shapes and on many decorations is the perfect choice to connote any type of space with style and personality.
Let’s know it better through the interior design proposals of our brand companies.
