Unexpected objects on a stack of books or on a shelf in a hutch are one of the most underrated elements in design. They’re often an afterthought, but they’re almost always the missing finishing touch.
Sculpture, figures, and trinkets are the type of decor that you look for after you realize something is missing in your decor. They’re not typically a “buy on a whim without a spot in mind” type of purchase.
And I understand why. They can feel like a pointless purchase unless you have a spot in mind. But let me just say… every stack of books, every coffee table, every hutch with shelves, every entry table and buffet needs one unexpected element. Big or small, add one thing that’s a little quirky and odd. That’s what will make your design unique.
