pastel triangles

Jenny's post on the Bauhaus made me think of one thing I've been meaning to post myself: These pictures of General Store in San Francisco.

Funny how woven textiles, a color scheme, and specific geometric shapes announce themselves for a year or two. That rug above reminds me of this rug below...
...which is a textile by Benita Koch-Otte from 1923, via MoMa.

 And the triangles and cubes in the rug remind me of the painted cubes hidden in the General Store display...

Click to enlarge and you'll see what I mean (I think!)

(Store images from General Store via 2 or 3 things.)
