The last time seashells were "in" (minus kitschy beach houses), was, what? The '90s? 2000s? It's definitely not a motif that we would have thought to revive, but as the saying goes: What goes around comes around. Now, indie designers and mass makers alike are making some rather cute shell-inspired items. The perfect summer pick-me-up is right around the bend ...


Tamar Mogendorff Velvet Shell Pillow, $160

Brooklyn's Tamar Mogendorff is known for her sculptural creations — like this shell pillow. Snag it in velvet in a variety of pleasing tones, or there's a linen version for something more Hamptons-y.


H&M Shell Dish, $5.99

What is it with shells and bathrooms? Well, we're not saying this H&M shell dish has to go in your bathroom, but it seems like a good place for it.


Gubi Shell Lamp, $689

Pricey Scandi design, but damnnnn, we like.


Aventyr Seashell Vase, $86.92

Anyone else getting The Little Mermaid vibes from this fun vase?


PB Teen x Emily and Meritt Shell Upholstered Bed (Full), $999

This upholstered bed certainly makes a statement. But why the shell not?


Clare V. x Wallshoppe Lotus Wallpaper, $149

We adore Clare V.'s Wallshoppe collab. Some may say these little doo-dads are flowers, but we say they can also look like shells.


Zara Home Shell-Shaped Coasters (4-pack), $35.90

Put these in your beachside home — if you're that fancy. Otherwise, they make a glam addition to any coffee table.

Ferm Living Shell Tufted Rug, $97.25

This is intended for a kids' room ... but you know how we feel about using kids' decor outside of the playroom. (Hint: We are pro.)
