Two tribes bat­tled it out in Mi­lan: those look­ing to ex­per­i­ment with colour, and those favour­ing the en­dur­ing chic of all-black de­sign. So-dark-you-al­most-couldn’t-seethem stands pro­vided much-needed shade from the Ital­ian heat and pre­sented ev­ery­thing from black fur­ni­ture to floor­ing. Known for its edgy, mas­cu­line aes­thetic, Diesel Liv­ing’s on­go­ing part­ner­ship with Iris

Ceram­ica saw Rebel Black be­come the go-to colour­way for con­crete­clad in­te­ri­ors. At Re­pub­lic of Fritz

Hansen and Cat­te­lan Italia, clas­sic mar­ble pieces got a re­boot in shades of Char­coal and Arde­sia. And Saba

Italia opted for matt-black wo­ven rope in its lounge fur­ni­ture. Think it all feels too se­ri­ous? Lema’s Bulè ta­ble comes with an op­tional lazy Su­san, prov­ing black needn’t mean bor­ing.
