All A-Buzz: Hexagons in Home Design

I was a math major in my college days ( I know...big snore) but I had the opportunity to study pattern which was very interesting. The hexagon was one of my faves.... It is a graphic and powerful shape and has been popping up a lot in home design lately. A popular trend one would say...

J'adore the new Modern Vintage collection of upholstery textiles from Carnegie Fabrics. Carnegie nods to traditional tapestry detailing by hiding the warp thread. This technique allows the cluster of hexagons to look crisp and modern. 
I also love love love the handbag, I want one!

Note Design Studio dreamed up the POV candleholders. Simplistic lines that create a three-dimensional hexagon. Very distinct.

Try a hexagon pocket to store your favorite things. Ampersand has created Wallpockets, inspired by clusters of barnacles, that utilizes space in an unique way. I like how the wall becomes dimensional and textural!
