Style Guide: Modern Geo
Bring your home to life with a bold new look this season; we're calling it Modern Geo.
Combining sleek and contemporary design with cosy elements, this new trend is rooted in Scandinavian-inspired style. Simple shapes and muted greys are contrasted against distinctive patterns and eye-catching geometrics for a unique effect.
How to Get the Look
For the living room, start by choosing a strong geometric wallpaper on one feature wall – we love the Layers collection by Tektura featured here, which comes in a wide range of colours that will complement any room scheme.
Next up, mid-century modern furniture shapes are a key part of this trend and the Myers sofa collection is the perfect way to add some retro style to your living room. Beautifully upholstered in grey wool, the chunky curved arms and button detail make this a design classic, and the firm yet comfortable seat and back make it a great choice for relaxing on with poise.
The Myers sofa comes with four brightly coloured scatter cushions with bold, geometric patterns and autumnal tones, but the large, Velveteen Orange Cushion will add extra colour and comfort.
Finish off with a cosy rug underfoot such as the Calvin Klein Linear Aqua Rug. While autumnal colours are the main focus in our look, a hint of blue adds a cool contrasting edge – mixing and matching is key to achieving a lived-in vibe and anything goes.
Whether you have a roaring open fire or not, piling up logs in an alcove adds a touch of Scandi chic and feeling of warmth, it’s a great finishing touch.
Colour and shape flows throughout this look – the Copper Angled Floor Light provides suitably practical yet intimate illumination, and the Round Copper Mirror creates a point of interest and sense of playfulness.
This look wouldn’t be complete without a piece or two from the masters of mid-century modern, Ercol. The iconic brand’s Black Coffee Table from the Originals range is perfect with its simple shape, clean lines and magazine rack underneath. Simply add some stylish coffee table tomes to set the reading tone!
This really is a wide-ranging décor so you can feel free to mix and match both warm and cool colours with prints and patterns for a truly stylish design.
