They are becoming more and more incorporated into modern décor, from small-scale accessories to whole-room finishes. While at first the choice of non-glossiness might seem boring, in truth, a matte finish serves to emphasize the quality of the form of the object itself. Because there’s nothing else there to distract from the actual object.

Exposed brick walls, ductwork, and concrete, for example, are tell-tale components of an industrial space. Similarly, lighting fixtures play a huge role in carrying the style through a space.
