The New Geometrics Trend

Layered textures and welcoming curves soften hard lines...


Gentle greens and painterly marks blur the edges for a calming retreat. A large painterly mural in a palette of muted greens sets the scene for soothing slumber, while a roomy bed, layered with complementary geometric prints and soft green linen, completes the restful scheme.


Geometry class is about to begin as pleasing papers and textiles with strong lines are bringing interiors to life – here’s how to work them...


Play around with shape and texture, layering varying scales of geometric textiles with distinctive, rounded furniture. The vibrant, Escher-inspired cork wallpaper stands out against a backdrop of smooth concrete walls and floor.


Create a corner sanctuary with a trompe l’oeil wallpaper of Turkish ceramics in jewel-bright shades. Pump up the colour and texture with layered carpets and glossy furniture, then add an extra dimension with exotic oversized plants.


Take a careful curation of shapely pieces and add a bold patchwork wallpaper backdrop to create a striking display.


A full-height geometric-print curtain drops elegantly into this lofty, minimal architectural dining space, offsetting the sculptural drama of the black prism-inspired table.


Brutalist concrete architecture and a glamorous silk curtain drop are a cool combination of hard and soft. Patterned wool upholstery brings extra comfort, while a lacquer desk makes working from home so very chic.


A grid of matt glazed porcelain tiles in earthy red hues moves from the floor up onto the wall, adding graphic warmth and colour to this marble and concrete bathroom space.
