One trend that is both endlessly reliable and relentlessly modern, is the use of geometric shapes in wall art and soft furnishings.

The repeated use of bold, precise shapes in design has been with us for centuries, but it provides an enduring way to sharpen up the feel of any interior.


The colourful geometric wallpaper in this hallway adds a soft and fun contrast to the blue walls, and its repeated triangular patterns are cleverly mirrored in the trestle table supports!


Whereas these hyper-soft painted geometric shapes create a lighter-than-air feel when combined with the retro-chic chair and clock. And the cleverly placed vase adds a wonderful little touch of ‘chaos’ to the interior.


Geometric shapes don’t have to be limited to walls of course. These stylish cushions use bold shapes with pastel hues to create a modern, yet relaxed feel when combined with the soft woods and clear white walls.


Nor do geometric shapes only look good in soft hues. This eye-catching black and white geometric wall pattern really works well in conjunction with the wooden furniture, and spare, yet effective drops of colour such as the bright yellow lemons and craftily placed orange typewriter!


And this retro kitchen really has fun with the geometric wall shapes that cleverly break up the harsh, white rectangular lines of the wall units, and brings a playful and carefree feel to the cooking space!
