Geometric Interior Trend … Love For Shapes A period in interior design


By  Tapaswini Mohapatra Samant, Architect, Environment Designer, Interior Designer

It truly seems that geometric interior trend is invading design and home decor. The real reason is that geometric theme is really adaptable, an ageless and stylish decor that may be used in many different interior fashion.

Whether applied in a wallpaper pattern, used as upholstery for a sofa or formed into a functional piece of living room furniture, geometric shapes have a graphic quality that can lend a modernist touch to any space.

The appear and feel itself can vary depending on the color and scale of the shapes you work with. Done in soft tones or a subtle scale, the vibe can be sophisticated and balanced; rendered in bold hues and large-scale designs, the effect can be playful and attractive. Circles, squares, octagons, hexagons, diamonds—the beauty of using these motifs to define your space is that there are so many different ways to go—both in pattern and furniture.

Let’s see some easy trend!

 “Have fun with shapes”. If you want to mix different shapes in a room, tie the patterns together with similar or complementing colors for a cohesive feel.

“Mixing prints are fine”, but try to keep them in the same color family and play with scale so that the designs are not competing.

“Black and white or monochromatic” colour combination makes the geometric statement even stronger, and its matches with lighter colours like cream, beige, peach, or neutrals like all and nude hues.

In terms of shapes, it’s undoubtedly the year of the hexagon. Hexagons are coming back in our global design as well.

Flooring in hexagonal patterns has to be included in that return to those traditional “cementine” floorings of the beginning of the 19th century:  in fact hexagonal tiles have been used first in Paris underground stations in Liberty style, to expand then in the style of the period, they may be found in many historical buildings as well.

The example is from the tiny world of bees, as we think nature is a great source of exquisite inspiration. If bees had contemporary awareness and the ability to use and appreciate furniture, we’re sure they would have a lot to buzz about this exquisite chic style.

Another geometric pattern which refers to a strong decorating tradition: herringbone pattern.

First herringbone floorings may be found in the far Roman era, in that “opus spicatum” formed by tiles in a 45°pattern, then over the centuries in many and many flooring patterns.

The evolution of this year is that herringbone flooring is no longer just for flooring, but for walls as well.

Some common regular shapes are the following:


Most commonly use pattern in the room and their innate geometry. Side tablesmirrorsrugs, cushions are typically represented as a square or cube in stature. Repeat that stance around the room and you’ll create a more subtle geometric pattern.


One of the icons in geometric design, patterns with triangles is confident and dynamic and will make your room feel energised.


Much like with squares, it’s surprisingly easy to make circular geometric patterns in interior design.  Furniture like coffee table, footstools, mirrors and rugs come in a huge array of circular sizes.


Overlapping shapes with repetition will immediately change the effect it has on a room’s personality.

This is an abstract composition; we like this particular panel on the wall that ties up in a contemporary, urban room. With The play of various sizes and shades of hues a nice pattern on the accent wall is created, adding an extra coolness to the place.
