Bold geometric patterns have taken the interior design world by storm. Find out how to bring them into your home.
Bring a fresh edge to your home with this season’s trend for all things geometric. Diamonds, triangles and chevrons are everywhere from tableware to soft furnishings. They are often rendered in monochrome – black on white for maximum impact, black on charcoal for sophisticated elegance or neutrals on neutrals for understated chic. If you’d rather embrace colour, though, fear not. This year, the boldest designers are pairing vibrant hues and striking patterns to create stunning, powerful interiors.
Statement upholstery is an easy yet dramatic way to bring geometry into your home. Here, the clean, contemporary lines of the 59th Street Armchair, by Content by Conran, beautifully offset the upholstery’s pattern. Armchair from £1,025, Content by Conran.
Amplify a geometric motif by rendering it in different colour ways, like this set of Broadway cushions by British textile designer Tori Murphy, which combine the intensity of the charcoal on black and black on charcoal pairings with the softer linen on mushroom and mushroom on linen. Cushions, £65 each, Tori Murphy.
Like colour? Then use it to create geometric patterns by colour-blocking simple shapes, like in the vibrant Technicolor Cushion Number 1 by East London company Room 39. Cushion, £65, Heal’s.
Love geometry? Be bold and combine different patterns, like in this hallway, where a sequence of three geometric rugs creates immediate visual interest. Rugs, £335 per square metre, Amy Kent.
For a subtle take on the trend, just add a geometric accent to your room, such as this retro-style duvet cover set by John Lewis. Duvet cover and pillowcase set, from £25, John Lewis.
Stay on trend without committing to it with monochrome, geometric tableware like this cup and saucer set by Aston Martin. Set, £115, though LuxDeco.
