Better in Threes

They say all good things come in threes...

I love odd numbers and asymmetry in design. It gives the eye something to discover and wander about.

A triptych (pronounced /ˈtrɪptɪk/ TRIP-tik, from the Greek τρίπτυχο, from tri- "three" + ptychē "fold") is a work of art which is divided into three sections. (Source: Wikipedia)

I'm a huge fan of triptychs for their large size, balance of threes and ability to make a room seem even larger. Beautiful over a sofa or console, these Trowbridge triptychs are of the classic/traditional sort. For a modern approach, why not use that gorgeous landscape photo from your last trip and turn it into something one of a kind. Or shall we say, a limited edition.
