Put simply. asymmetry makes things a little more interesting. It adds visual interest.Now that you know what asymmetry is. it's important to take a more in-depth look at why people use it in their designs. The most common reason is that it adds more visual interest. Where the repetition of symmetrical arrangements has a tendency to feel monotonous over time. asymmetrical looks keep us on our toes.
Take the picture above as an example. The fireplace has such a commanding presence that your eye is pulled to it. If you're willing to go this bold. an architectural element definitely fits the bill. It's also possible to go more subtle. A concrete island instantly becomes a conversation piece in your kitchen and a coffee table easily grounds a seating area.
Why Concrete Is 2018's Next Big Thing in Interior Design (and How to Try the Trend)Concrete is shaping up to be 2018's next big design trend. So far 2018 has brought us quite a few polarizing design trends. We've already talked about how to harness the power of bold colors. but now. it's time to talk about a trend on the other end of the aesthetic spectrum.
It almost goes without saying that concrete and industrial design go hand in hand. You don't have to work hard to conjure images of former industrial warehouses turned sun-drenched lofts or reclaimed bits of machinery that have been transformed into chic accent pieces.If you're going to go this route. we suggest going big to really drive home your design inspiration.
