The arch has enjoyed a good, long run as the darling of the design world. You’d think the current obsession would eventually dissipate, and yet there’s ample evidence to suggest otherwise. Instead of calling it quits on the painted arch trend, TikTok just came up with a new twist. Indeed, DIYers can still be found arch-ifying everything from IKEA furniture to wall niches.

But you don’t have to be a seasoned DIYer — or even pick up a paintbrush, for that matter — to get in on the arch trend. Scroll through any home store’s current offerings, and you’ll see that the retail space has just as much fervor for the shape, with a wide range of arched offerings available. Below are nine decor pieces under $50 that can bring the timeless silhouette into your home, and all you have to do is click “add to cart.”
