Our Favorite Geometric Patterns For Summer

We at Decoist love celebrating fabulous design through the change in seasons. And it’s easy to get excited about summer style! The bright, warm weather lends itself to crisp, cheery patterns. Stock up on bold geometrics, from the earthy and breezy to the retro and modern. Lines, angles, shapes and curves blend well with any style, thanks to a wide range of geometric patterns available. Today we highlight our current favorites. Enjoy!

Geo Patterns for the Walls

Let’s start with the walls! Pick one (or more) and get ready to wallpaper. In fact, an accent wall is a great way to freshen up your interior! Showcase a radial grid motif with this Orbit Small Metallic Self-Adhesive Wallpaper from CB2. Mod yet contemporary, thanks to a double-line design:

Speaking of grids, this Peeks Traditional Paste Wallpaper from CB2 boasts a gold-on-charcoal color scheme. Imperfect lines make this pattern designed by Noël Ashby truly interesting. Let’s hear it for the freeform grid!

Don’t overlook the power of a striking piece of artwork. This Capiz Wall Art in Triangle from West Elm features hand-inlaid capiz shells in an interlocking triangle pattern that’s very on-trend. Plus, the glisten of the shells evokes a beachy vibe:

Monochromatic triangles make a statement on the Andes Wool Rug in Slate from West Elm, thanks to the varying heights of the wool. Texture, layer and depth are created, yet the unifying slate tone keeps this piece from being too busy:

Geometric Furniture Patterns

Some of today’s most interesting geo patterns appear on furniture. This large chevron pattern in reclaimed pine really calls attention to the slanted wooden planks of the Alexa Bed from West Elm. Yes, slanted wood is once again stylish!

A colorful chevron definitely makes an impact! This Stella Cabinet from CB2 features a bold design by Ceci Thompson. Once again, a large pattern without zig-zag repetition updates the oh-so-popular chevron that’s dominated the design scene for the last few years. Time for a change, folks!

How about a geo pattern within a pattern?! The Talita Cocktail Table from Jonathan Adler features a hand-stamped design on nickel-plated metal. In the image below, we see the piece from the side, then we zoom in for a good look at the details of this metallic geo pattern:

One of today’s top design trends is wire furniture. A modern revival of a retro concept, the return of wire provides ample opportunity for summer airiness and geometric patterns. The asymmetrical triangle motif of this seating from Bend features galvanized iron with a white powdercoat finish:
