A Matte Black Kitchen Contrasts The Lighter Interior Furnishings Inside This Apartment

Studio Arthur Casas together with architect Marina Werfel has designed the interiors of a modern apartment in Paris, France, that includes a striking matte black kitchen.

The kitchen, which is a key design element in the apartment, strongly contrasts the light furniture found in the nearby living room.

Let’s take a look around the rest of the apartment…

The Exterior

The home is located within a building that’s located on one of the most elegant streets of Paris, where the major fashion stores and art galleries are concentrated.

Entryway

Throughout the home is a monochromatic color palette, with wood and steel design accents. Central to the open plan living room and the kitchen is a large steel beam in the ceiling that’s been painted white, while wood beams have been left exposed.

The Living Room

In the living room, neutral-colored furniture creates a calm and relaxed environment, while the glass coffee table with a black base complements the black kitchen cabinets and the black accent wall at the opposite end of the open space.
