Developing a love for geometry | Geometric Lighting

Geometric lighting, geometric print cushions, geometric homeware — geometry is taking interiors by storm.

Now, I loathed geometry at school.

I’m a complete dullard when it comes to maths.

Being made to do fractions and *shudder* long division is something that I still have nightmares about.

However, every new school year — without fail — I’d twist my mum’s arm.

And persuade her to buy me a brand new pencil case and yet another geometry set.

And what did I do with it?

Well, the protractor was always useful for carving one’s name in the desks.

And the little ruler was always in use — until I invariably lost it — but the rest of it was redundant.

Geometry was — and still is — as hazy as algebra and trigonometry.

Although, all of a sudden the new buzz-word in interiors is ‘geometric’ and my interest has being piqued.

I’ve spotted some really beautiful things recently — tables, vases, wallpaper.

Even our lovely bed throw from Habitat, that I wrote about at the beginning of the year, has a geometric pattern.

So to keep it company we’ve just installed the most gorgeous geometric pendant lamps from Iconic Lights.

Gorgeously  graphic, these Geometric beauties are fantastic quality.

The Diablo pendant shades are made from a heavy, powder coated metal — and a steal at just £13.


Rather than hang the shades on the old white fittings, I ordered a couple of black industrial style lampholder pendants too.

I must just point out that the shades weren’t actually designed for these.

My boy had to dismantle the fitting in order to get the shades on.

There was a moment of panic when we didn’t think they would fit; but it’s worked out beautifully and I’m so pleased.

In a different setting the coloured lamp-holders would look amazing. Maybe in sunshine yellow — or even red. But for our bedroom and dressing area the black works perfectly.

Plus I’ve teamed them with vintage filament bulbs; which look amazing when they’re off. But even more extraordinary when they’re on!

I’m pretty pleased with them, I must tell you.

Since we’ve lived in our current home, we’ve had a chinzy old lampshade hanging above our bed.

And a little ozone-busting chandelier taking centre stage in the dressing area.

The fact they didn’t match irked me slightly. So to replace them with these little black numbers, has not only restored the balance in the room; but given me a new love for geometry.

Mr Shaw — my maths teacher — would be so proud.

  1. I love these and love the love picture too. Looks gorgeous – and yes, this is the best kind of geometry right? None of that school stuff! :) Thanks for hosting xx
