If you want to achieve a look that is timeless, chic and versatile, why not take some cues from the world of fashion? Monochrome styling may lend itself to the Sixties in many ways, but it is a look that never goes out of style. Whether you are planning a monochrome wedding or looking to achieve the monochrome effect for your event or in your bar, we have some design and furniture tips that will ensure you get the look just right.
A room that is themed in black and white has such an impact, and the great thing is that you can add a third colour accent without spoiling the look. Black and white lend themselves perfectly to each other and are also a great blank canvas to neon or other monochrome shades such as grey.
So, let’s say you are starting off with a predominately white room. Black is a great starting point here when it comes to choosing furnishings and will allow you to build on your look as you go. Why not start with some of our amazing Swan Chairs, or how about a Black and Chrome Sofa? We also have some great cube seats that can be dotted around to ensure enough seating for everybody.
When it comes to themes and colour schemes, anything goes when it comes to planning a wedding. Monochrome lends itself beautiful to a wedding setting as black and white are some of the most traditional of wedding colours - the bride’s dress, the suits, the cake etc. Black and white is chic, sophisticated and versatile and so it is little wonder that more and more couples are going for this theme. We offer a wide range of options for weddings, including our beautiful covered chairs, available in many colour ways.
Monochrome is great, but it can be a little harsh on the eye - think about those optical illusions that often use black and white as their base. That is why it is important to layer your look so that the eye is drawn naturally to different areas around the room. You can do this with coloured or patterned cushions, vases on tables, rugs or a mixture of fabrics - velvets and faux fur look great with monochrome.
Monochrome is stylish, smart and aesthetically pleasing. For these reasons it lends itself perfectly to the corporate environment. In fact, more and more companies are starting to do away with the walnut clad conference room walls and instead opting for glass tables, black and white leather seating and stylish reception areas.
Take a look at our Richmond Executive Chair and chic White Filing Cabinets for just some ideas on how the monochrome look could work for your business. We have a huge range of black and white furnishing options that can be used across your office, or in areas where you want to create interest or give a great first impression.
