We’re having a Henry Ford moment

It was the famous inventor of the Model T who said, in 1909, that you could have his car in any colour, as long as it was black.

For some reason, we’ve been having a bit of a Henry Ford few weeks. Our editorial team has been inundated with product – some of it spanking new and others just uninhibitedly beautiful – all in black. We thought we’d share a few with you. Whether high gloss or muted, linear or organic, black always suggests a sleek sense of occasion. Black can also punctuate or bind a space: it’s anything but gloomy.
