”A traveler without observation is a bird without wings”
-Moslih Eddin Saadi
I was scanning through my I-Photo library the other day and realized I have a major place in my heart for geometric patterns. I love them on the ceilings, as room dividers, as window shutters, marble tiled floors, gates and front doors! And whenever I travel, I take photos of these patterns. Take a look at a few I have seen in trips in the past few years.
The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai India
The Blue Palace, Elounda Beach, Greece
Front door on East 69th St, New York, NY
Haru Restaurant on Huntington Ave. Boston, MA.
Alleyway in NYC, somewhere in the Upper East Side, NY.
Screen found at Brimfield Antiques Fair. Said to be from a Bank in Los Angeles, CA.
I love using geometry in spaces I design. They show up in fabric selections a lot but I find I am drawn the most to putting them on the floor.
Here is a carpet for a client that is being hand knotted in a custom color as we speak!
If you haven’t fallen in love with Madeline Weinrib’s carpets, you will. She does geometrics so well. Here is one we did in a client’s house in South Boston.
We all have photo libraries fills with pictures of trips gone by. Have you been in any trips where you seen something that has inspired you?
