The best thing about interior design is that the trends are forever evolving, and we can’t get enough of all the new trends that are being discovered. A trend that has become increasingly popular in recent times are geometrical patterns; geometric prints add visual interest to any space they’re placed in as well as adding a pop of colour. Geometric prints can often be seen as futuristic and the balance is often hard to get right, but they contrast perfectly with retro lighting, which help to balance the old with the new. In this blog, we’re going to give you plenty of inspiration as to why you should pair the two in your interior design!
Tile It Up
One of the easiest ways to incorporate the geometric look in your interior is by opting for some patterned tiles. There are plenty of options out there, whether you prefer a pop of colour or something neutral, you can even opt for shaped geometric tiles rather than a pattern for a different effect. In this bathroom interior white geometric style tiles were paired with brass accents to create a luxurious, on-trend look.Orlando Wire Cage Wall Light - 4 Inch - Brass, by Industville (Image supplied by @Resi_UK and say 'Home design by @Resi_UK)
Freshen Up With White
The heart of the home deserves an incredible interior! We spend longer in the kitchen nowadays, and homeowners want to create a more homely vibe to wow guests. Dark kitchens are currently in the spotlight, but white kitchens are starting to make more of an appearance as they make the room appear brighter and lighter. The perfect way to add interest is by opting for white geometric patterns to create an elegant look. This kitchen interior has opted for a white splashback with a vintage wall light to create a harmonious interior. The contrast between the modern patterns paired with vintage lights is mesmerising!

If you want to swap out your splashback for something a bit jazzier, then geometric splashbacks are the way forward. Patchwork style, bright hexagon shapes and coloured tiles are the seamless way to create visual interest to your kitchen décor. Pairing metallics with a bold splashback adds a funkier feel, by mixing and matching industrial lights you are creating a bold interior, unique to you. The various vintage shades contrast perfectly with the futuristic geometric splashback, creating the ideal balance between vintage and modern design.Brooklyn 5 Wire Pendant - Brass, by Industville (Image supplied by Sarah Wright Kitchens Union Mill)
Wow With Wallpaper
An easy and more cost-effective way to incorporate this trend in your interior is by switching to abstract geometric wallpaper. There are a variety of different styles to suit every interior out there, from modern and contemporary to classically vintage.

Our pewter wall light fits in dreamily, creating a contrast between the clean lines of the tiles and rustic brick wall, adding plenty of much needed character!Sleek Edison Wall Light - Pewter, by Industville (Image supplied by @lets.stay.at.home)
Make It Trendy

The funkiness of the trend allows commercial spaces, such as restaurants, to create a seamless interior that customers feel at ease in and adds to their dining experience.

The metallic finish of the lights works incredibly well with the bright velvet chairs and the geo print on their bar.
