Modern & minimalist clocks for contemporary interiors; the Newgate clocks to complement a pared-back aesthetic.
As Marie Kondo tidying fever sweeps the nation and January inspires a detox in all aspects of daily life, there is a growing trend for contemporary 2019 interiors that reflect a modern, minimalist and simplified approach to living.
We’ve rounded up a quartet of Newgate’s most popular modern clocks and minimalist clocks to complement a pared-back aesthetic.

A minimalist interior is most-often anchored by a backdrop of neutrals. White, grey and all tones of beige - from off-white to biscuit - create a blank canvas of calm and simplicity. The key to adding interest to this monochrome palette is in layering texture and interest through carefully considered furniture and home accessories.
Offering function and form, our modern clocks and minimalist clock collections deliver the essence of the William Morris maxim now appropriated by contemporary minimalists; “Have nothing in your home you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”.

Introducing natural wood elements will bring an organic feel to a minimalist interior and prevent a monochrome space from feeling sterile.
The Scandinavian-feel of Newgate’s pale plywood ‘Mr Clarke’ collection plays perfectly against muted minimalist tones.

Modern Luxe | Contemporary Clock
When limited to well thought-out accents, fixtures or fittings, the warmth of gold or brass will also add an extra dimension to a modern or minimalist scheme.
The gold-finish ‘Oslo’ wall clock is a contemporary clock with a luxe yet minimal aesthetic. A fine marker dial and linear metal hands reduce this minimalist clock down to the barest of essentials, whilst the warm metallic case adds understated glamour to the otherwise sparse design.

Classic Minimalism | Modern Roman Numeral Clock
A minimalist interior doesn’t mean you have to go ultra-modern. The best minimal schemes incorporate cherished pieces with a rich patina of history alongside more modern home accessories to add interest and create balance.
Newgate’s classic yet modern wall clock, the ‘Italian’, fuses traditional design with contemporary materials.
