The idea of decorative objects can be intimidating.
We’ve noticed there’s a general conception that objects are one of those unnecessary, “interior-designy” things that are just for show.
We get it; it can be hard to wrap your head around investing in a sculptural object that has little or no meaning to you, only to place it on your coffee table for the rest of its life.
