Contrast is an important element of composition. We create contrast, most frequently, with color. Sometimes even with texture. But rarely with shape. These five rooms, though, play with different forms to create that always-important opposition and interest between pieces (or even within the same piece).
To get the look at home, try mixing boxier or geometric pieces with curvy, round ones. The contrast will lend your space lots of visual interest – and even some positive tension, if the pieces really act like opposing poles.
What's your favorite way to create contrast in a room–color, texture, shape, or something else?
