The Black List: Shop These Pieces to Create a Beautiful Black Kitchen

Creating the moody black kitchen of your dreams requires appliances and housewares in this inky hue. Fortunately, product designers have been having a love affair with all-black everything for a few years now.

Here are some of our favorites:

Designer Joshua Vogel uses a natural process to turn his white oak cutting boards into this velvety black hue. They’ll get more beautiful with age as long as you don’t let citrus linger on the surface. From $175.

Potter Jasmine Crowe creates a series of gorgeously textured yet delicate pieces for Beekman 1802. And they’re surprisingly affordable. From $42.

Jenn-Air designer Jessica McConnell, who created this built-in refrigerator, says she was inspired by classical art. The black background makes the fruit and flowers in old Dutch still lifes pop, and it works in real life too. From $9,400.

Nobody knows how to elevate a kitchen staple into a work of art like Alessi, and they’ve done it again with this William Alsop and Federico Grazzini pepper grinder with dramatic Fortuny-inspired pleats. About $90.
