One of the hottest trends in decorating this year includes bold geometric designs on furniture, upholstery and accessories. The four elements I gathered for this room will work well in a contemporary or transitional home or apartment.

The clean lines and dramatically angled legs of the Strut 36” Glass Top Table from Crate and Barrel anchors the design. It features a deep walnut stain and fits comfortably in a small space. It costs $499. The Simon X Table from Pier 1 Imports mimics the bold style of the inspiration table. It can accommodate a glass top up to 48 inches, but for comparison the table base with a 36 inch glass top costs $180. Savings: $319, or 64 percent.

The Itaki Parsons Chair features unique patterned upholstery. The neutral taupe and ivory print adds a designer touch to the room. Each chair from AMB Furniture costs $161.75. I found the identical chair at Discount Beds Only for $64.95. Savings: $96.80, or 60 percent.

The beautiful, geometric patten on the shade of the Hudson Pendant light illuminates the space while adding interest to the room. The small 15 inch light costs $538. The Tiella Bronze Island Light from Lowe’s is similar in size and style. The 17 inch light costs $164. Savings: $374, or 70 percent.

To complete the space, use a round mirror in a dark wood finish to tie together the prevailing round elements and dark color of the table base, chair legs and hardware on the light fixture. The Hitchcock Butterfield Round Mirror has a hand-applied finish and measures 28 inches in diameter. The price is $219.99. For a knockout knockoff, purchase the Oil-Rubbed Bronze Mirror from Target. Pay only $51.99. Savings: $168, or 76 percent.
