Let’s talk colour or better yet no colour. If you browse Happy Interior Blog or check my Instagram account, you will know that I am not one of those Scandi bloggers who have mastered to style their homes by only using black and white and some colourful hints of grey. On the other hand, I am neither one of those candy coloured, bright and flashy colour bloggers. I love a good mix of muted hues, ethnic patterns and yes – I like some neutrals to balance the space too. And black is eternal – in fashion or in interiors. So it comes as no surprise that one of the leading design brands, Vitra, has launched a Black Collection (presented at the recently held Maison & Objet in Paris).
Vitra’s Black Collection sets a dark, cool and elegant tone for the winter season 2015. The Black Collection comprises various new design objects and accessories as well as existing design classics as new editions in black. The collection debuts with five design classics by Charles and Ray Eames: the Eames Elephant in black, the Hang it all coat hanger in all black and in black with wooden elements, the Plastic Armchair RAR in black and the Occasional Table LTR in all black. The collection also includes further design pieces as special black editions.
No matter if you pursue a monochromatic interior style or you love your colourful home: a black design classic will only enhance your interiors. I personally crave the new all-black Occasional Table LTR by Charles and Ray Eames. I mean it is such a versatile and cool design icon – I could pile up my interiors books, group some of my favorite plants or just enjoy its plain and dark beauty. After all, design is the new black! That is Vitra’s Black Collection.
