47 Russian Doll Inspirations

From Pop Culture Nesting Dolls to Matryoshka Confections

— March 14, 2013 — Naughty
From pop culture inspired nesting doll sets to babushka confections, these russian doll inspirations pay homage to the iconic decorative objects. Known for housing several smaller versions of themselves, the ornate dolls feature traditional colors, garb and makeup that is reminiscent of the nation's culture and rich historical past.

Whether inspiring ornate editorial spreads or space-saving furniture designs, these russian doll inspirations are taking the world of design by storm. While fashion designers tend to gain inspiration from the vibrant textiles worn by a Matryoshka, industrial designers are dissecting the famed dolls and mimicking their clever and simplistic concept of storage.

Encouraging beauty and space-saving design, these nesting doll innovations pay tribute to the iconic objects and introduce the world to the culture of Russia.
