Hex hexagonal trend in interior design

Hexagonal tray

We’re loving hexagonal designs at the moment and they seem to be everywhere in interior design and homeware products – have you spotted the hexagonal honeycomb decals on the walls in this year’s Apprentice house?

So when we found this hexagonal beehive tray at John Lewis, we couldn’t resist it!

The serving dish style tray is made up of seven mini hexagonal compartments. They each lift out, so that you can arrange the segment colours as you wish or use them independently if you don’t need to use the whole tray. It’s perfect for serving dips and nibbles with and is an attractive and eye-catching design.

The hexagonal beehive tray is yours for £45.
