In general, triangles are my favourite shape. I’m not entirely sure why, but it might be something about three sides or three angles that works for me. Maybe I like the pointy edges. Maybe it is my fascination with odd numbers. I really do not know. But right now I seem to be drawn to chevrons and zig zags too.
Recently I have stumbled across a few designer-makers that have made my heart jump and my brain shout “yes!” I love it when moments of beauty or inspiration take hold like that, when I see something that makes me smile.
Anyway, here are some of my favourite chevron and zig zag featured pieces.
This purse is from FalconWright, a collaboration between to designer-makers producing handmade leather goods in Toronto, Canada.
This from my new favourite person I have never met. I discovered Arielle Alasko through Design*Sponge last week and fell in love with her work, her aesthetic and her amazing attitude. She builds furniture from reclaimed and recycled materials and this headboard is one example. Stunning.
Another Design*Sponge find. This chevron ceiling is a relatively easy DIY. I wonder if the boyf would let me do this in our new hallway?
I love the simplicity of this screenprinted tea towel. Unfortunately it has sold out but it’s inspiration can carry on.
Do you have a favourite pattern or shape?
