The Timeless Dance of Black and White: Celebrating Classic Designs

Like a beautifully orchestrated symphony, this timeless duo has left an indelible mark on art, music, and even our palates, shaping our culture and interior spaces.

But first - a few of our favorites from the Black & White Collection:

Black & White Collection at Maison and Tavola

Baobab Totem Diffuser

Disney's 101 Dalmatians showcased the stunning impact of black and white long before it became synonymous with chic interiors. The contrasting spots of the adorable pups against sleek monochrome backgrounds exemplified a classic synergy that continues to inspire design enthusiasts. To capture this elegance, we recommend the Feathers Totem Diffuser from Baobab. Its tall and slender design resembles the grace of Dalmatians, while the black and white feathers add sophistication and whimsy.
