MODERN GEOMETRICS: THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME
There’s no denying it, geometric shapes and graphic designs are squarely on-trend. Offering a crisp modern sensibility, these classic patterns are inspired by the past yet completely updated. Clean rectangular lines draw the eye from one side of the room to the other while circles, spheres and ovals offer balance and rhythm. Look for repeated shapes and bunched motifs such as octagons and hexagons as well as brilliant blends of small-scale and oversized patterns.
"I think the universe is pure geometry - basically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time." - Antony Garrett Lisi
Intriguing by nature, these bold forms warm up a room and give the eye reason to roam. From linear shapes to exaggerated curves and contours, the foundation of this design direction is rooted in geometry.

Get the look by grouping similar shapes to create movement or experiment with your own combination of contrasts.
