Not just for the bees, honeycomb designs are incredibly versatile when it comes to the construction of different items.

The perfectly symmetrical shape of the hexagonal pattern works to create a strong structural skeleton that is both sturdy and lightweight, a unique combination that is practical for architectural designs as well as furniture and accessories. Without even bothering to conceal this skeletal frame, designers know that the playful honeycomb pattern is appealing to most people, with its crystallized yet organic appearance. People who are attracted to the imagery of sweet sensuous honey and happily buzzing nature will be drawn towards things with a honeycomb design.

Both functional and attractive, structural honeycomb designs and pretty honeycomb prints are being seen in jewelry, home decor, furniture, buildings and artwork.
