Matte black accents are making a major comeback—and this time, it’s all about the kitchen. Some time ago, the trend was ubiquitous, found within just about every spot of the home. More recently, amidst all the bright colors we’ve seen taking the design world by storm, we noticed the reemergence of the bold trend in the form of culinary accessories and appliances. Ahead, we look to the newest products on the market which encapsulate the matte black decor scheme with effortless ease.
