When it comes to decor, geometric patterns are among the most used tools to create good effects in your place. Circles, squares, Triangles. heptagons… there are endless combinations. Geometric patterns give us a sense of order and calm, without losing dynamism and movement. And geometric patterns aren’t just an element of Modernism or contemporary designers. since the begging of time, ancient cultures, like Turkey, Persia, or African Tribes use geometric patterns, as decorative elements or as a part of spiritual or even artistic manifestations.
A slight gradient, shaded, or abstract overlapping geometric will always be on-trend. Whether in your house, or your office, hardly they will fail you. As with any pattern, keep in mind that abusing one geometric pattern may result in a tedious or overwhelming space.

Don’t use geometric patterns in your wall unless they’re really subtle, you risking to be overwhelming.
