Geometrics are not only visually stimulating but also versatile, seamlessly blending with a variety of design styles from modern to eclectic. Their playful nature invites creativity, allowing for endless possibilities in decor arrangements. Embracing geometrics can transform mundane spaces into dynamic showcases of style and personality, enriching your home environment with charm and vibrancy. Here’s how to integrate geometrics into your home.

Wallpaper and fabrics

“Geometric wallpaper can serve as an interesting focal point, sparking conversation. Ottomans or a retro-designed chair upholstered in geometric fabric offer a unique way to accentuate the contemporary aspect of a stylish interior.” – Michéle Fortune, product development at Design Team Fabrics

Sideboards, home decor and wall art

“Geometric-inspired sideboards and consoles are emerging as stylish additions, providing functionality and artistic flair to interior spaces, while home decor items like vases and carpets incorporate creative geometric designs. Captivating wall art with intricate geometric patterns and three-dimensional designs further elevates the overall visual appeal of interior spaces.” – Johann De Waal, marketing manager at KARE Johannesburg
