Polygons – Polygon basics – In Depth

Posted on

The word polygon
is a combination of two Greek words: “poly” means many and “gon”
means angle. Along with its angles, a polygon also has sides and vertices.
“Tri” means “three,” so the simplest polygon is called
the triangle, because it has three angles. It also has three sides and three
vertices. A triangle is always coplanar, which is not true of many of the
other polygons.

Introduction to Line in Interior Design

• Horizontal Lines: Weighty, secure, restful, stabilizing.

Horizontal lines suggest a solid, harmonious relationship with the Earth; this gives a stabilizing, peaceful harmonious effect to window treatments for example. When found in a connecting architectural detail such as mouldings, horizontal lines provide a smooth transition between rooms or areas. If they lead to a focal point, they help to emphasize it.

Too many horizontal lines in an interior may become boring and lack visual interest. Horizontal lines make a room appear wider or longer.

• Vertical Lines: Lofty, solid, formal, imposing, restrained. 

Vertical lines lift the eye upward and make windows, and sometimes, entire interiors, appear taller or higher. They have the ability to lift the mind and the spirit as well.
