Caves are Mother Nature's forts, underground cavities that house mystery, history and silence. It's no wonder caves are such bountiful sources of inspiration in the design world; the sense of privacy the image of a cave conveys is enriched by the organic shapes and forms designers so love to replicate.

In the slideshow below, you'll see cave-inspired homes for humans and dogs; schools, hotels and libraries; subterranean photography, and dives through underwater caves.

Implications - The lack of privacy that is so prominent in current society due to the rise of social media and technology is an issue manifested in a literal way with the appeal of private, secluded designs and architecture. Businesses can benefit from this by producing goods and services that appeal to customers' need for privacy and seclusion. Stats for 10 Cave-Inspired Creations Trending: Older & Mild
