If you need a new home timepiece with a big visual impact, a black clock is the way to go. Just like your favourite leather jacket these clocks are here to stand out…oh and they’re plenty practical too!
To really maximise the presence these black clocks have in a room you can try out a modern take on the grandfather clock. Standing clocks are unusual these days so you’re sure to get plenty of compliments on a thoroughly modern take on this old-fashioned style. A contrasting face, pearly digits against an inky black body is sure to look stunning beside a swooping Eames chair or gleaming alabaster cotton couch. A great way to accentuate its slender lines is by placing the clock next to a tall standing lamp; we especially love it beside the three slender legs of a contemporary tripod lamp. It’ll be a lot easier to read with some illumination too!
Wall clocks are particularly handy and handsome in the kitchen. Keep an eye on when your guests are arriving with a design that’s sure to look stunning with stainless steel fixtures and granite countertops. To keep things from feeling too monochromatic try a clock with colourful hands (think fire-engine red and traffic-cone orange) and then grab a pair of matching dish towels to help you tidy up in high style. The bedroom also benefits from having an easy way to keep track of time, and a charcoal bedside clock with a light-up display is the perfect low-key way to do it. Here’s an after-hours pro-tip: too much blue light late at night can keep you from getting a good night’s sleep so try out a few warmer, dimmable bulbs in your bedroom to ensure you don’t hit the snooze button in the morning!
