Look, and you shall find. It only takes seeing something a few times to start to recognize it as a trend. That's what Suzy Slesin of
, the brilliantly creative and effervescent former Editor and Chief at Oprah Home Magazine would say to me, and she's right. In this case, I have been seeing this patchwork/prism/kaleidoscope pattern trend bubbling up. I like the fresh geometry to it, let's see if it evolves in a bigger way.

Boy oh boy, did I see tons of great new rugs at Las Vegas Market. So many in fact, that I now have the dizzying choice of selecting a pattern for my own home, and am stumped. Patterned, graphic hurries in cotton and wool caught my eye, in both brights and muted tones. When it comes to innovating, color is king. Companies Safaveih and Surya are pushing the boundaries of geometric pattern with ethnic influences, scale and design with their latest additions. Some of these are so new they will be updated with style numbers shortly. Which design would you choose?
