icff 2010: circles

by Grace Bonney

this week i’m going to be breaking down icff coverage by trends i noticed, whether it was based on shape, texture, or style. today i’m kicking things off with something i found myself noticing after i processed all of my images: circles galore! the past few shows have felt very focused on angular or faceted shapes (they were still there, more on them tomorrow) but i noticed a trend towards round shapes popping up in both wallpaper and furniture. so today i’ll be sharing 20 of my favorite round designs, ranging from turn tables and rugs to lighting and grand paper installations. enjoy!
