Finding the Right Angle: Using Geometric Furniture in Your Home

Geometrics have been in for a few seasons now, and it looks like they’re not slowing down any time soon. One trend I’m particularly enthusiastic about is geometric metallic furniture. Geometric pieces fit in with just about any style of interior, depending on how you use it.

How to use geometric metal furniture in your space

To successfully incorporate geometric metal furniture into your space, decide what type of feel you want to achieve in the room. For example, if you’re going for a minimalist approach, one striking piece will suffice. If it’s a traditional room, try mixing in your geometric choice in one part of the space, and then balancing it out in another part of the room with an additional piece.

The image below shows two different spaces, in two different styles, using geometric metal tables. The image on the right has a more rustic and playful feel because it is set off by the pink metal table with a wood top, wicker lampshade, and various pillow covers. The geometric table keeps the room fresh and current.

By choosing light colors and green plants, the image on the left has a cleaner and lighter vibe. The negative spaces of the table allow the room to feel fresh and airy. A bulkier hallway table would further ground the room to create a more weighty room.

My favorite use of the trend is the geometric wall divider and bookshelf in the first image. It’s both striking and functional. Once again, the negative spaces created by the metal create a lightness and interest to the room.
