Darkness and Light

In their Pre fall 2013 collection, I noticed Calvin Klein’s use of white fabric outside with an unexpected black inside.  The contrast makes for a clean, sophisticated look.  The black inside really frames the white and makes it look solid and opaque.

In a similar fashion, Fabric Image’s White/White/Black material showcases a soft white face with a rich black back without adding the bulk or construction time of adding two or more layers.  Something as simple as a pleated curtain made from this material can not only add the same opaque properties, but it can be flipped from one side to the other to give a different backdrop for your space.  Let the white and black contrast work for you and your space look too.
