Surf’s way up! 7 wavy decor pieces to create a more free-spirited space

Undulating lines have been making waves in the interiors world since the beginning of the pandemic, and it appears they won’t be crashing anytime soon. Equal parts energetic and comforting, wavy silhouettes and patterns that mimic the natural ebb and flow of water can create a calming effect in a space, while supplying a touch of trendy Memphis Milano–style whimsy. From shell-shaped wall lights to brass-inlaid stone tile, Business of Home presents seven sinuous decor accents to bring a playfully organic element into a home.
