7 squiggly decor pieces to energize your space

Joyous, undulating patterns and shapes are having a design moment, and it’s easy to see why.

After all, last year was about keeping it together, and now, thankfully, we can afford to let our hair down a bit. Here are seven exuberant pieces to lend a playful touch to any home.
