It’s the symmetry with this collection of vintage motorcycle wall art that makes this room stand out from the crowd. If these paintings were hanging on the wall by themselves you might just walk on by without taking a second look. You wouldn’t see a speedway of vintage motorcycles racing through the countryside. Or the speed and determination in the men and the bikes. You can almost feel the wind in their face and the sweat on their brow. You feel like you’re there and you know it’s going to be a close finish. The symmetry of how these paintings are hung combined with the placement of furniture makes this entire wall become the focal point of the room.
Vintage Motorcycle Wall Art
Symmetry is defined as the quality being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis. Or in simpler terms, an object has reflectional symmetry if there is a line going through it which divides it into two pieces which are mirror images of each other. In this case, the line would go directly through the middle of these vintage paintings. Symmetry is created on this wall with the placement of like items on each side of the painting. First, the wall is grounded with two over sized sofas flanking the collection of wall art. The a large coffee table is placed in between to ground the two sofas. Take note that scale is important with this space given the large size of the room and the paintings. Next, the sofas are flanked with two matching floor lamps, again over sized light fixtures. Lastly, two substantially large mirrors are hung on each side that add not only symmetry but the perception of depth to the space. Each piece alone might not get your attention but grouped together make this space a checkered flag winner!
