Maybe it’s the fact that Christo and Jeanne-Claude (posthumously) had the Arc de Triomphe wrapped in fabric, or because curvy lines are making an exuberant comeback, but arches seem to be everywhere these days. Simple yet ornamental, arcs recall the shapely structural forms found in classical architecture while simultaneously evoking the free-spirited scalloped motifs that defined the 1920s art deco movement. Here, Business of Home presents seven arched decor accents to infuse glamorous, old-school vibes and whimsy into a space.
ADA OVAL COFFEE TABLE — LULU AND GEORGIA
A statement cocktail table with sculptural appeal, the Ada Oval coffee table at Lulu and Georgia is constructed from solid oak and features a sleek oblong top and arched legs.
HARPER DESK — MITCHELL GOLD + BOB WILLIAMS
ABODE RUG BY ÉLAN BYRD — LULU AND GEORGIA
The subtly striped woven border of the hand-knotted Abode rug by Élan Byrd contrasts with the curvy, arched forms in the pattern to forge a fanciful, fringe-like effect.
UNSEEN LED TABLE LAMP BY STUDIOPEPE FOR PETITE FRITURE — LUMENS
For a sophisticated spin on trendy neon signs, look no further than the Unseen LED table lamp by Studiopepe for Petite Friture at Lumens. Along with casting warm ambient light around a room, the arched, tubular lamp moonlights as a focal point even when it’s not in use.
JUNE ARCHED VASE — LULU AND GEORGIA
Drum up some drama on a side table or home-office desk with this arched ceramic vase even when it’s empty. Not only can you fill this architectural vessel with seasonal flowers and foliage, but its extra-wide opening allows it to double as an artful penholder at a work-from-home station.
ALLIGATOR ARCHES — BRETT DESIGN
A little patterned wallpaper can go a long way in a small space. Use Alligator Arches by Brett Design to bring depth and dimension to a pint-sized powder room, or employ it in a petite entryway to set a bold tone for the rest of the home.
LEONOR VASE — LULU AND GEORGIA
Handcrafted by Portuguese artisans, the large Leonor vase at Lulu and Georgia is designed with an extra-high arch so that you can nestle the smaller, coordinating version inside of it.
