Sometimes the term beach cottage design seems synonymous with traditional interior designs. While it’s true that many beach cottages have a mix of antiques and cottage-inspired furnishings, you can also create a modern design using geometric beach accessories and furniture.
Geometric Beach Accessories and Furniture to Decorate Your Modern Home
Geometric accents can lend contemporary style to your home. Here are some examples from the Cottage & Bungalow catalog to inspire a study of geometry in your interior.
Old and New. You can find a happy medium between traditional and contemporary with the Geometric Three Door Cabinet. A weathered, distressed cabinet is embellished with a diamond pattern with striking effect.
Retro Flair. Enjoy a little Palm Springs-inspired retro flair with our Geometric Tile Embroidered Pillow in cool green and yellow. The pillow was designed by renowned fashion designer, Trina Turk.
Transitional Lighting. The Antioch Rectangular Chandelier is a transitional piece that boasts a fluid metal design, reminiscent of antique iron pieces, but with a decidedly modern twist. Triangles, rectangles, and circles all play a part.
Glamp it up! For tabletop lighting, we’re fond of the Edmond Glass/Antique Brass Lamp. Again, we see the juxtaposition of antique materials with a modern design. The angular frame supports clear glass panels.
Grounded Geometry. Area rugs add style, comfort, and boundaries to your living spaces. Now, they can add pattern as well. From Crisscrosses to Mazes, we have an array of geometric-patterned area rugs to adorn the floors of your home.
Stylish Trunks. We saved the best for last. One of the defining features of old beach homes were the curiosities they acquired when seafaring vessels returned from afar. That is what we’re reminded of when we look at the gorgeous Baldwin Red Trunk. Exquisite, hand-painted lacquer, and carved bamboo in a timeless Scalamandre pattern make this a true conversation piece.
