A Geometry Lesson from Moroccan Home Furnishings

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Moroccan homes and furnishings are decorated in a range of geometric patterns.  The rule book on the use of patterns has been thrown out of the window as they rejoice in mixing shapes and sizes to create a trend that is identifiable on first glance.  Geometry is traditionally combined with calligraphy to create effects that are just simply stunning.  With the use of repetition, circles and symmetry these detailed patterns are very much a source of inspiration with a variety of designers today.
