I am a longtime fan of Piet Mondrian. Ever since discovering his work in a freshman art-history class, I've been fascinated by the rigidly precise but strangely vibrant compositions he created with black lines and panes of bright primary color.

So here's an interior design tribute to the Mondrian aesthetic - a collection of pieces in bold primary colors and modern shapes. Pair with a black-and-white striped wallpaper for maximum effect.

1. DLM side table, $280.
2. Felt handle stool, $395.
3. Cobalt blue lamp, $40.
4. Yellow stapler, $39.
5. Yellow desk, $2726.
6. Plexiglass coffee table, $895.
7. Tulip chair, $1,244.
