We’ve seen our fair share of “out there” trends: Sci-fi lamps, bug-themed decorative accents, and amorphous pieces with a melt effect, to name a few. Suffice it to say, there’s very little that can surprise us these days—enter the latest mini movement to have hit the scene: serpentine-inspired decor.

From the literal to the abstract, and every colorful iteration of the concept you can imagine in between, snakes are the en vogue motif here to elevate our everyday essentials. Think candleholders, plates, and luxe catchalls. Read on to see the creative ways these trendy serpents are making a statement.
