On Trend: Invasion of the Blobs

Perhaps you have noticed how simple the contours in nature really are? Viewing ripples in water and visiting stones on the coast, you will see the repeat of the exact same shape: for lack of a better word, the blob. The more natural the shape, the more attractive it is on our eyes. And that seems to be the appeal of these pieces.

This blob trend focuses most on a neutral color palette, which highlights that the shape and keeps it complicated. Amoeba-like and single celled, these designs let your mind relax and your eyes break — and, in almost all examples gathered, your body has to take it easy also.
