Matte black seems to be moving from
fashion to our interiors and we love it! Expect to see bold, high-contrast
furniture designs like luxurious marble with black steel. Or black leather with
deep brown timbers. One of my personal favourites is the sleek designer Forte
leather armchair. This stylish seat is made from 100 per cent genuine leather
with deep brown timber legs, armrests and comfortable back support – absolute
bliss! Move over rose gold, traditional metallic gold is going to make a major

to worry about watering them)!
