The designer of the Oras mobiles above describes these pieces as, “wall sculptures — part mobile, part hanging art.” Personally, I’d love to use a mobile in a large-scale living room, a refined office, or on a porch replacing a wind chime. Think: Alexander Calder.

What about you? Do you think they’re juvenile or just right?

    They're just right. I love decorating with them too.
