Trend Spotting: Arrow Motifs

A more directional take on geometric.

The geometric trend has been around for a while—but lately, the sharp shapes and crisp lines have been morphing into something a little more . . . pointed. Arrows are kind of like the little sister of the ubiquitous chevron pattern, and they seem to be popping up everywhere: printed on wallpaper. Sculpted into wall hangings. Bundles of the (almost) real thing, carefully painted and splayed in a vase. Whether you prefer your sharp shapes on a print or a pillow, we’ve tracked down seven great arrow-adorned decor items to work into your own home.

1) Holli Zollinger for Deny arrows box, $59 at Urban Outfitters; 2) Arrows print, $20 at Lulu & Georgia; 3) Little Woolf gold arrow-print pillow, $145 at Etsy; 4) Nate Berkus for Target arrowhead towels, $6-$16.14 at Target; 5) Arrow wall sculpture, $89 at Urban Outfitters; 6) Heritage wool scented sachets, $14 at Leif; 7) Fletcher and Fox tall metallic arrows with animal print and gold feathers, $78 for set of six at Etsy.
