Trend of the Year: Geometric Patterns

As designers we know that the fabric industry constantly has trends that appear and disappear quicker than your eye can blink.  Over the past couple of years we have seen that geometric patterns have become a dramatic influence on how modern interior designing is emerging.  These patterns are used for multiple purposes, such as furniture, pillows, lamps, rugs, bedding, etc.  The reason why this trend is so influential is that it allows the average person to incorporate pattern in the room scheme without being too overbearing.  Most geometric designs these days are limited to two to three colors with just enough emphasis in the room to make a subtle but bold statement. Some examples are below:

So Where do I look to get geometric patterns like these?

These patterns are offered by a variety of companies, but here are some of my favorite patterns and where to get them below:

Geometric Patterns could eventually emerge into a classic style of contemporary pattern.  Not really basing their origin of design on a particular type of style, rather on symmetry and geometry which gives it a minimalistic approach to design.  This look is great for the average person that wants that architectural influence incorporated in their room design.  Many of these patterns come in bold statement colors, but for those that are not too color savy they also come in neutrals!
