Abstract and Geometric Cushions & Cushion Covers
Sharp lines, defined contours and shifting shapes—geometric patterns create a sense of clear-cut clarity that pierces our perception. From squares and triangles to hexagons and diamonds, forms contrast with one another through colour-blocking and bold edges. The result? Eye-catching constructs for any bed or sofa. So decorate your home with geometric print cushions and add a pop of pattern to your interior.
Tastes and colours
If you visit an exhibition featuring Mark Rothko, you will realise the significance of colour in abstract art. When you see the jaunty angles of Pablo Picasso, or the paint jets of Jackson Pollock, it becomes clear that the main role of art is transmitting emotions rather than simply depicting nature as it is.
Well-aware of this, our artists love playing with shapes and colours with the aim of evoking a variety of different sensations. Set your feelings free with geometric cushion covers—you could even accompany them with cushions featuring New York, the birthplace of abstract expressionism.
The origins of abstraction
Fathered by the likes of Wassily Kandinsky, abstract art stems from aesthetic developments of the 20th century. From the Renaissance to the mid 21st century, artists tended to reproduce nature with finesse and precision. However, the subsequent democratisation of other areas of art and culture acted as a breeding ground for the birth of abstract art.
While gallery walls are often filled with the works of more famous artists, recent new waves in the world of design have made abstract art more accessible to everyone. Turn your home into an art gallery with abstract and geometric cushions.
The Fibonacci sequence, Pythagoras' theorem, the golden ratio... Geometry can be found throughout the natural world and is said to be the mother of all motifs. Who hasn't marvelled at an intricate snowflake or an aesthetically-pleasing Romanesco broccoli?
The beauty of abstract art is that it doesn't reinvent the wheel; rather it incorporates the simplest geometric shapes that can be found all around us. By combining ferny plants and retro designs with coordinating abstract cushions, you can create oh-so-original compositions in the spirit of a true contemporary aesthete.
