Trend Watch: Triangles

Triangles have long been popular in design, from Alexander Calder's mobiles to Konstantin Grcic's Chair One. They seem especially popular lately and we’ve noticed them everywhere from sheets to napkins.

Simple, modern, and sleek, we think they’re a fresh counterpoint to the stripes and nature-inspired patterns of the past few seasons.
