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.
