Geometric patterns are trending once again this year. Adding a furniture piece such as an armchair or a table would be a great way to incorporate this style into your home, but for those not wanting to dramatically alter their rooms, try adding in a geometric rug, throw or cushion set. These cheap little additions can add some pattern and texture into your rooms without being overwhelming. Geometric patterns don’t just have to be for upholstery either; decorative accents such as candle holders for lamps are a great way to integrate this trend with function.
