Inspired by: Geometrics

The latest CB2 catalog showed up on my front doorstep a few days ago and as I was flipping through it I was immediately drawn to the lines in their b r z bed linens.

Immediately, I thought of a recent design that Envelopments® featured in their latest wedding collection.  I loved the clean lines, the modern feel and the geometrically inspired graphics.  So I started looking for more geometric goodies and was so pleased to find that this hot trend is just getting started.

Just check out this beautiful Farmhouse Chair from LA Furniture and Product Design House, Bend:

I seriously can’t get enough of this chair which is all at once complex and yet simple.  The bold color elevates this to perfection in my eye.  And word on the street is that it is surprisingly comfortable.  But if a wire seat isn’t your thing, check out this equally stunning Geometric Animal Trophy Head, also from Bend.  Way more fresh, in my humble opinion, than the cardboard versions that have been everywhere the past few years.

As much as I love the whimsey of the piece above, I also appreciate the softness of Urban Outfitters’ Honeycomb Glass Pendant Shade:

And for an even more modern take on the geometrical shade, try this Dustin Dodecahedron Wood Pendant from Ralph Lauren available at Circa Lighting.  Available in two finishes, it is a simple, yet striking piece that would add so much to an entryway or foyer:

For the more adventurous, Ferm Living’s Monroe Wallpaper is breathtaking.  Can’t you just imagine this in a powder room or on one wall in an entryway?

Lastly, if you’re intrigued by the concept but wary of falling for yet another hot-turned-played-out design trend (can we say Chevron, anyone?), this sweet little pillow from Etsy’s ClassicByNature could be just the right touch.

What do you think – can you see geometrical design making its way into your living space?

    Geometric shapes are almost always a good idea when it comes to decoration. Great pictures and even better read!
