The Fish Trend Continues: 15 (More) Favorite Finds


The Fish Trend Continues: 15 (More) Favorite Finds

April 15, 2024

Last fall we started noticing something strange: fish motifs appearing all over interiors, on ceramics and lamps and table linens, and in our favorite shops—subtly at first, and then everywhere we looked. Eventually fish became so inescapable we dubbed it an official trend.

Six months later and the year’s most peculiar fad is still going strong—in fact, there seem to be more fish things out there than ever before.

Is it design’s version of the tinned-fish resurgence? Was it sparked by Florence Pugh holding a fish on the cover of Vogue? We’re not sure. But we remain intrigued.

Here are 15 (more) fish finds we love:

the ceramic sardines are &#8\2\20;handcrafted in umbria by il buco vita& 17

Above: Ferm Living’s Stream Embroidered Textile Lampshade is “a modern take on traditional rice lamps…inspired by a Japanese aesthetic that captures the motion of swimming fish and the soothing, endless flow of water.” It’s €119.
