This summer’s hottest new fashion trend is (drum roll please)…..geometric prints! It seems that you cannot escape this fun, fearless fashion trend, but then again, why would you want to?!
These power patterns were all the rage on the runway this Spring. Now that Summer is upon us, the interior design industry is playing catch-up and incorporating the concept into everything-pillows, draperies and even furniture!
Take a look at some of our favorite applications (and tips!) for this bold and fresh trend.
Go big or go home! Reupholster an entire chair in a geometric print and make the piece the emphasis of your space. The great thing about geometric patterns is that they are relatively timeless, so you won’t have to reupholster in a few years time. Geometric prints are reminiscent of Greek and Islamic cultures; these designs will never go “out.” Afraid you might make too much of a statement with a bold print? Choose one with a muted or neutral color.
Small accessories, like pillows or even lampshades, can incorporate this trend in a subtle, yet classy way. Don’t be afraid to use brighter colored prints in these applications.
Benches are a fun and cute way to incorporate this trend. They are waaay easier to reupholster than a chair and can easily be done at home with a staple gun and a few yards of fabric.
