Is Black the New White?

Flavel’s dual fuel double oven/range in black

While paging through the past couple of issues of the Brit interior design mags, my eye kept lighting on all the home appliances that manufacturers are now offering in black.  Is this a fad or a trend with legs?  These are, however, very rustic chic, but what would Van Day Truex have said?

Smeg’s 50s Retro Style Refrigerator
Falcon’s Continental Range in black
C P Hart’s Double Soaker in black


Flamant’s double bath vanity in black
KitchenAid’s food processor in black

For my money, I’ll stick with classic white, as shown in the barn’s kitchen above, keeping the black limited to the honed Black Absolute granite countertops and oil rubbed bronze drawer hardware.
