Flat Shapes

All shapes start with a dot that extends into a line and end up forming a shape. We use two dimensional shapes on everything like fabric prints, paintings, and even when we set up the table for a party.

Circular and round shapes give the impression to be constantly in motion, they are perfect as the have no beginning and no end, and the are the sign of eternity. They are perfect to be used in places where you want to create motion or a festive environment, they remind you of the sun when used with warm colors or the moon when used with cool ones, and they are playful in children's rooms.

Square shapes are elegant, stable and balanced. These shapes are great to be used in seating arrangements as square tables are easier to fit in a space, square shapes buildings look more solid as they are firmly grounded and they are the foundation for the suits worn by men.

Triangles are the divine shapes as they have been used throughout to define the trinity in Christianity or the burial place by the Egyptians when they built the pyramids. Triangles are directional and remind us of the way tree branches grow.
Have a lovely Monday
