Guest Picks: Geometric Finds for the Modern Home
Hi there! My name is Lauren and I live in a little 1930's house with my husband and two girls. I've always loved design, and have been renovating and redecorating our home since we moved in. When I had my first daughter in 2010 I fell in love with children's design and began my current blog, A Lovely Lark. I also write for Apartment Therapy, Ergobaby, and contribute here on Houzz.com.

One of my favorite current trends is the use of geometry in modern design. There's something about those chevron patterns, triangles and prisms that just get me every time.

This lamp is sold as a children's product, but I think it could easily fit into adult decor as well.
Kaleido Tray, Medium - GBP 29
The colors of these trays are perfection, not to mention the clever nesting design.
Hive White Storage Unit - $99.95
I love that this storage unit is different yet still functional. And they can be grouped and stacked in a ton of unique configurations.

This floor mat is both gorgeous and hardworking. The chevron pattern is fun, and the colors are spot on.

Geo Planter, Small, White by MGMY Studio - $54
I love the use of geometry in plant holders. Something about those rigid, faceted surfaces paired with the organic shapes of the plant get me every time.
Quartz Piñata, Cantaloupe - $140
Confetti System's designs are so pretty that you could leave them hanging long after the party is over. And I can't picture anyone ever hitting this beauty with a stick.
The soft colors of this mirror are the perfect contrast to its angular shape. It's a pretty accent piece for any room.
