    Thin Black Lines Trend - Wardrobes and Clothes Racks // Curated by Yellowtrace.

     

    And so my obsession with thin black lines continues. Perhaps you remember an old post dedicated to this topic?

    Much to my delight, I’ve been noticing a number of wardrobes, clothes racks & valets that have been stripped back to a single black line. These minimalist design pieces are like traces of sketches brought to life. Devoid of any superfluous decoration, they play with our perceptions of the second and the third dimension. This is precisely why I love them so, and I hope you do too. Let’s take a look at a few of my favourites.
