Urban Electric lighting

Black & White

When it comes to design, nothing is more classic than the pairing of black and white. From a checkerboard floor in a foyer to a tiled bathroom wall to kitchen stripes and bedroom accents, it is the ultimate statement combination — whether used alone or added in as an amplification of an already established color palette. Black and white is bold. It’s beautiful. It’s timeless yet also always au courant. Which is why we are always delighted when a client requests a light fixture rendered in this yin and yang combo. Below, some of our favorite examples of the power of black and white in our lighting.
