World Origami Days, an international celebration of all things origami, is on until November 11. While I lack the patience to master the art of paper folding, I admire it both as a craft itself and as a great influence on design. Pieces like this lampshade, koi artwork, safari animal statues, and owl table lamp appeal to me with their stark elegance and geometric shapes, but I have a soft spot for these origami mobiles by redBERRY design.

So simple, and such a great way to brighten up a room. No doubt that the mobile would be dreamy over a crib (as shown in the Soho Style slide of this photo gallery), but I think you could add these colorful cranes just about anywhere for a flight of fancy.
