Labyrinth Inspired Geometric Designs
Geometric designs are the latest rage in patterns. These looks have been trending for a number of years in the design world, but have you ever wondered where the inspiration for this look came from? Labyrinth patterns were commonly seen in the cathedrals, such as the Notre Dame de Reims. This look was a symbol of the architect who built the structure. Many other architects in different regions also created symbols and patterns into the ornamental features of the facades of their architecture thus creating a distinct symbol of the country in which it was created. Today’s patterns are commonly pulled from Greek, Moroccan, and Asian themes.
Just like geometric patterns pulled from past origins, so did striped patterns. There are many different type of stripes, but the most popular stripe is the awning stripe. This is a stripe that is symmetrical in width and alternates two contrasting colors. This particular look has been used since the 6th century during the Romanesque Architectural Period in Europe.
