“I ran into Isosceles. He had a great idea for a new triangle!” — Woody Allen
Triangle motifs are hot — have you noticed? Lots of designers are incorporating them into their products, from wallpaper to rugs, fabric to fashion. You can find this popular polygon popping up in subtle applications, as well as big and bold swatches. Of course, whenever there is a trend, Etsy sellers are all over it. I like to see how creators interpret trends such as this, as well as the surfaces they’re applying these patterns to — fabric, ceramic, canvas, paper and wood. From equilateral to scalene, isosceles to obtuse and beyond, you can find triangles being worked from many different “angles.” I’ve collected some of my favorites from talented Etsy sellers. Enjoy!
