Stay ahead of the curve with these 7 arched designs

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.
