A few years ago octopus images started showing up at the furniture markets. Both Las Vegas and High Point, N.C. had octopi on fabric, furniture, tableware and pillows.
This trend shows no sign of going away. Here are some ways to add this look to your home.
Octopus Furniture is available at all different price points.
The Olivia Octopus Table can be used indoors or outdoors.
