home: trend [ boobs and bums ]
It’s affectionately with humour but with a poignant meaning of self love, confidence, removing the over sexualisation of women, celebrating the human body in all its glory, shapes and forms, and creating beautiful homeware. The trend for illustrations or shapes of female body parts is strong across homewares including vases, cushions, prints, plates and cups.
We’ve picked some of our favourite pieces found on the high street and online.
