Hudson Valley Lighting FixtureMatte black has become the new metallic finish in lighting, so we’ve added it to our palette. It’s a trend that’s here to stay. Like the perfect LBD or a Tom Ford tux, matte black adds a glam sophistication that feels luxurious, doesn’t it? But that’s where this trend takes a sharp left turn. Mixing matte black shades in lighting is an instant update that works in a city style with white subway tile. But imagine what it does in a rustic luxe room combining it with wood finishes.

With lighter flooring and tile, dark cabinets and matte black shades pop in this kitchen (link to RIGHT vertical picture on homepage). In this month’s Trending Now (link to Trending Now) we take it home to industrial modern for its dramatic appeal in a floor lamp. The lamp is an architectural element that adds form and function. Matte black’s lush contrast could also include hardware in the kitchen, or matte black chairs at a rustic wood finished trestle table.

With about 100,000 light fixtures and counting, we’ve got this trend in every style you’d like to live in.
