X Marks The Spot
There is something so classic and geometrically satisfying about the X. Be it in a pattern or a chair back or a window pane, the X motif can be found across the years in design. Paloma Picasso certainly agrees on this point, using the X as her signature in her jewelry line. It is a solid and ever-present standby in furnishings and fabrics. As a result it is simultaneously traditional and contemporary. Take a look around at your everyday places and spaces. There may be more pieces that feature the X than you realized. And if you find you are short of this element of design, then perhaps you should find your own X and add a little X-factor to your home!
