Balance is one of the most important factors in interior design. One way to manipulate the essence of an interior’s design is to incorporate multiple shapes, finishes, colors, and patterns. This year, the market has been inundated with eclectic furniture trends — especially can’t-miss patterns that naturally add movement and other alluring design components to our dynamic pieces.
Shape is one of the most massive and obvious elements of design. A classic shape, the circle, lends itself naturally to the concept of infinity. Symbolically, circular shapes are also seen as being protective with their never-ending, encompassing arms and represent unconfined, free movement. Compared to squares, circles are seen as much softer, friendlier, and gentler. In interior design, they tend to grab your attention and can be used to purposefully place emphasis on certain areas in a space.
At Gabby, we love integrating circular shapes into our transitional woven and hand-carved furniture. Take a look at some of our pieces accentuating the time-honored shape.
A new addition to our product pages, the Milly Chandelier is our take on the standard drum shade pendant. We added a geometric outer frame with an unmistakable circular design. The quirky chandelier spotlights a silver finish with gold accents, and it is highly suited for a small-scale lighting area.
The Kayson Lamp is the perfect example of simplicity within structure and function, but still makes a bold statement with its large circular centerpiece. Made of a mix of classic and modern materials — antique gold, white bone, and clear acrylic — the Kayson Lamp would flow in a transitional library or living room setting.
Stunningly graceful, the Virginia Chandelier features interlocking antique gold circles. Reminiscent of a chandelier you might find in a castle during the Middle Ages, this eye-catching chandelier is constructed of black iron curved fixtures situated around the shining circles and acts as a sophisticated example of using circular shapes in interior design.
Inspired by British Architecture, the Winthorpe Chandelier could be quite an exclusive, beautiful addition to a client’s foyer. Forged solely out of iron with an aged metallic finish, this impressive piece has an interlaced circular form and four well-positioned chandelier bulbs.
The rustic Ella Coffee Table is simple but dramatic with its aged oak top and interlocking iron circles all around the side. Finished in an earthy russet color, this coffee table would blend perfectly in an eclectic living room.
