Trendspotting: Honeycomb

As you'll remember, Pantone declared "Honeysuckle" its color of the year for 2011 - so I guess it's a natural progression that we see honeycomb patterns popping up everywhere lately!

I went bananas for the lighting fixture on the cover of TradHome's premier issue a couple of months ago...

Here's a smaller version - love how the pattern plays with that stair runner...

We noticed this stunner at the Boston Design Center.  If you look closely, you'll see the tag says "Hold - Bryant Park Designs" for a certain member of our design team who is thinking of pulling the trigger!  I hope she does; then I'll have visitation rights.

Shades of Light provides another take on the honeycomb light fixture with this fabric covered pendant.

West Elm gets into the mood with some affordable ceramics:

Love the honeycomb mirror recently made by Pottery Barn and Pier One...

It's nothing new - but David Hick's iconic hexagon patterns, seen at play below, also send off a honeycomb buzzzzzz.

Some other honeycomb inspirational images to ponder...

  3. I thought that carpet looked familiar:
