Two for Tuesday: Spiders

Design: The Sea Urchin

In addition to furry furniture, morrocan poufs and blankets, decorative urchins are invading homes across the country.

This is a design trend for those who want a permanent reminder of beachy living. The form and texture of these urchins are so interesting that they’re sort of just hard to resist. Am I¬†right?
