We’re seeing the illusion of movement trending in furniture design, decor, fashion and photography. The latest spotting are these cleverly designed BLOW shelves that have been created with a romantic wind-swept concept from a Japanese 19th century woodblock print titled Travelers Caught In a Gust Of Breeze in Ejiri.
