The 15 Sleekest Matte Black Accessories For Your Home

These pieces are no shine and all style.

​The little black dress or LBD has been a staple in women's wardrobes for decades. Black has always held a sacred place in fashion—but we can't overlook its parallel role in interior design. From fixtures to floors and furniture, black home design elements add an element of sleek, modern sophistication.

Lately we've noticed that the latest iteration of black to sweep the fashion and beauty world—matte black—has influenced interior design as well. DIY enthusiasts have embraced the ability of a dull, shine-less black paint to completely makeover any piece in their home, and designers and brands have adapted, too.

The way we see it, any room in your home can be enhanced and upgraded with some matte black elements. You can go big—we found the most gorgeous matte black claw foot tub—or small (think flatware and table clocks), just don't miss out on this trend.

Ahead we hand-selected 15 matte black finds for your home.
