From Patriotic Metropolitan Decals to Better View Curtains

 - May 20, 2012
Much to the dismay of nature, there seems to be an infatuation with bright lights and tall skyscrapers, as an army of skyline inspirations have touched everything from shelving to photography.

The iconic New York skyline is often recreated, however, there are other notable appearances, such as by Toronto (as identifiable by the CN Tower). There are the traditional innovations, such as perspective photography and stunning advertisements, but also the more creative products as well. For example, skylines have been etched onto plastic sunglasses, or modern designers have made skylines into unique statements of contemporary design in the form of wall shelves, and there are even skyline-decorated blinds for those who don't live in the city, but would like the same view.
