Pattern Potential: Geometric Decor

Lately, it seems as if designers are incorporating even more geometric patterns into architecture, furniture and textile design. Geometric-style fabrics and furniture can add a punch to just about any room, especially when used in one bold statement or accent piece. While some geometric pieces have the tendency to take design sensibilities quickly back to the 1980's, more modern patterns can enliven and freshen a space. Even something as subtle as a tea towel can be all you need. Here are a few fun ideas to get you started.
