Geometric Decor for the Modern Home

Geometric prints and furnishings make a bold statement in a modern home. Depending on the look you want to achieve, the sharp angles of carefully chosen geometric pieces can represent a futuristic style or showcase a retro sensibility. We’ve compiled some excellent examples of this modern design trend to inspire your home decorating.

Geometric Lighting

One of the most attractive ways homeowners can incorporate geometric shapes is in pendant lighting. The effect is two-fold — the structure of the light itself is aesthetically pleasing, and the shape of the pendant has the potential to create diffuse lighting with equally pleasing shadows in a living or dining space.

Gentle Curves

Not every piece you select within a geometric-inspired theme has to be rigid.

Selecting geometric decor with gently curved or flowing lines can provide a welcome break for the eye and brings a sense of whimsy to a living space.

If you only want to incorporate pops of geometric print here and there in your home, look to textiles, window treatments and linens to meet your needs.

Bed sheets, throws and towels are ideal for inserting a bold chevron print here or a more subdued circle print there.

Rugs

A handsome geometric print rug is like artwork for your floor. A well-chosen rug can bring a whole room together or simply complement the other pieces you choose for a space.

If you don’t want rugs with eye-catching prints to shout for attention, you can select a neutral color that is striking without overpowering the rest of the room’s decor.
