FFF – Black or White …

We should start this Furniture Free Friday with a definition:

Chromatophobia

An abnormal aversion to colours or to certain colours.

We found out about this phobia from a wonderful anecdotal article by Michael Bierut.

For most people, colour is basic element of our daily lives that we use for comfort, inspiration, practicality, etc.  Doing a prancy 360 in the KE-ZU showroom will show you a huge array of colour.  We love it.  However, according to S.K. Love of the Vedicure Wellness Clinic, an estimated 5 to 10 percent of people suffer from Chromatophobia.

Colour shouldn’t be feared, colour can bring so many positive emotions together and add a flair to anything that it is applied to.  Having said this however, suffering Chromatophobia may not necessarily be such a bad thing.  This started us thinking about all the things we love that only come in black and white… so, let’s have a think about all of the wonderful things that can be limited to a greyscale.   Check out some of our picks below:

A little favourite quote from the king of Black and White, Mr Karl Largerfeld himself sums this Friday up perfectly:

We live in a world of colour and excess.  Black-and-white always looks modern, whatever that word means.

It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, or a rainbow – it’s Friday so have a good weekend!
