Renaissance means rebirth, and if you’re looking to give your home a little decorative rebirth right now, here’s some good, punny news: there’s a Renaissance resurgence in decor going on right now. I’m talking nude sketches, sculptures, and other small pieces of figural decor, and they’re all classic enough that they’ll still look good in your home long after the trend is over.

Artists have been depicting bodies in multiple media for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, traditionally in sculpture, drawing, and painting. And we’ve certainly talked about both breast decor and face print decor before. But today there’s more variety than ever in terms of the body types and features showcased. These accents are perfect for private spaces like the bedroom and bathroom, but they can also be fun, cheeky (get it?) additions to your living room and beyond. And remember: Not all body decor has to be super provocative—we’ve rounded all kinds of options, so you can celebrate the killer curves and natural anatomy of the human form pretty much wherever you please.
