Trend Spotting: Geometry

Trend Spotting: Geometry

May 8, 2012

In a special report from Paris' Maison & Objet show earlier this year, we predicted that geometric patterns would be big for 2012. Sure enough, lately we've been spotting bold, geometric prints everywhere. Rendered in colorful hues, basic shapes like triangles, squares and diamonds bring a jolt of life to a modern space — and appeal to the kindergartner in all of us.
