Geometrics Rule!

Triangles. Heptagons. Polygons, rectangles and the lot. They’re not just for engineers, architects and math professors anymore.

Geometic shapes are lending their clout to the best in fashion and design these days. Clean-lined and edgy, they’re a sharp, urbane look – updated to hook your heart.

Take a peek at Elle D├ęcor’s recent “Trend Alert: Geometrics” by Anita Sarsidi for some striking examples. Jump here to see the whole slideshow. Here’s my favorite:

Don’t you love how this halter dress from Pucci’s 2009 collection beckons the eye with clear, colorful shapes? Who knew geometrics could be so flirtatious?

Bold and sure, that’s how geometrics grab your attention and take command of your heart. I don’t know about you, but I could sure go for a measure of boldness and sureness in my life – say an alluring accent piece to take command of my living room.

That’s one reason I yearn for American Leather’s Metro collection. Its wood outlined arms, bold frame and straight back define geometric power.


Don’t you agree? The Metro is a tour de force of geometric lines – a collection that’s destined to be the love of your living room. Its inviting rectangular lines are the perfect place to recline when you need to think outside of the box.

Can you see it in your home? I’m already drooling over its strong, dynamic lines.

And perhaps best of all – it’s designed for lounging, conversation and all kinds of linear and non-linear activities. You’ll find yourself seeking it out time and again.

Who knew geometrics could be so seductive – and so comforting -- at the very same time?
