Hole-y Glamour: Top Picks for Perforated Objects

Hello Fabulistas! Some of the best design trends entail playing around with a material to reimagine it. Perforation is one of those trends that literally punches holes in everything for an amazing effect. However, it isn't just your standard round holes that I've seen in home accessories. There are all kinds of shapes at play. Here are some of my favorite perforated things.

Standout red stairs Spiral staircases are having a moment right now, but this staircase is just as stunning! Access to the upper floor of a split-level property becomes an art installation with this Diapo-designed staircase. This modern building element is inspired by the work of Do Ho Suh, specifically "Staircase-III," which is a mid-air flight of stairs the travel to the ceiling. Perforated staircases are so popular, I could do a top picks post on them alone!

Great design isn't always about symmetry, it's about balance.

Create equal but different visual interest on both sides of your space by playing with varying heights, weights, and quantities of your objects on opposing sides.
