Charcoal has proved that it is not just for grilling. Activated charcoal has hit the beauty industry by storm thanks to its anti-bacterial properties.

This season, we have also seen the color popping up in fabrics and other home goods. The color charcoal has the same classic and sophisticated look as black, but with a softer edge. You can even draw inspiration from the texture of charcoal. Its rough surface adds an organic look to any midcentury modern or industrial home.

As it turns out, you can also take advantage of activated charcoal to purify your home. Springfield Mercantile Co.’s discreet charcoal cube air purifier would make the perfect addition to a desk or bathroom shelf. According to Molly Brown, owner of Springfield Mercantile Co., you can even place it in your fridge to keep the air fresh and clean in between grocery store trips.
