As we look towards summer styles in our interiors, it’s assured that one thing that’s always true to the season is lots of colour. Whether it’s tropical prints or fiery florals, we have a tendency to echo the beautiful colours that we see in the natural world outside, however 2016 has given birth to a new summertime trend- ‘monochrome interiors’.
Whilst we may usually associate these bold colours with dramatic, contemporary spaces that don’t abide to any season, there’s something clean and fresh about the combination of black and white that makes any interior have a distinctly luxurious feel – perfect for those who want to add some light and airiness to a room whilst not taking away the drama of each individual luxury furniture piece. As such, below we look at some of Treniq’s trending black and white pieces. If you want to fill your interiors with some monochrome magnificence you know exactly where to start.
