It’s true: Oval-shaped home items (think: tables, mirrors, and more) are replacing circular ones, and personally, I’m here for it. There’s just something about an oval shape that adds a little more intrigue in a room than a round design. When it comes to furniture, oval-shaped finds are also wonderful for narrower spaces because they’re elongated, which is just another added bonus for setting up a small room. I rounded up my favorite oval-shaped decorating finds on the market right now. They have a lot of elegance and utility to offer any home and may be just the thing you were looking for for your next design update.
