29 Banana-Shaped Designs

From Banana Heels to Fruity Flash Drives

— June 17, 2013 — Lifestyle
If you like bizarrely constructed furniture, these banana-shaped designs might be a creative addition to your home decor. The long, curved shape of bananas has inspired many designers, companies and brands to create some of the most interesting home decor designs.

The yellowy banana skin and long curved cylinder shape has sent many designers creating seating, shoes and even purses shaped like the delicious, potassium-filled fruit. The long shape of the banana and versatile yellow color suits furniture design and brings beautiful color to any room in the house. While delicious to snack on, bananas seem to fit well with creative furniture and fashion designs.

From giant banana loungers to wearable banana-shaped shoe sculptures, bananas and home decor seem to create a happy and bright design marriage.
