Matryoshka dolls, also known as Russian nesting dolls, have inspired a number of creative stacking innovations. From matryoshka couture to giant matryoshka invaders, you'll see how this basic child's toy has been adapted into a number of very adult manifestations.
My favorite are the color-changing Matryoshka lamps, which provide a geeky modern alternative to a retro lava lamp. Which is your favorite?
Implications - Many designers are looking towards ethnicities to provide one-of-a-kind pieces that are fresh and exciting to shoppers.
