It is a fairly new trend, still on the rise, but worth mentioning this time around since it's now finding its way into our interiors outside of the kitchen. They can now function as a décor piece, rather than just being used for its initial functional purpose. The trend roughly started last year and was on the forecast for 2019. More specifically, bone and horn carved spoons were the main focus and it’s still the most used material for this item that we´ll see this season, with a few exceptions. There are a few meanings and symbolisms attached to the spoon itself. In some cultures, the spoon represents good health and family strength and was used to decorate the walls in kitchens to emphasize its message. In dreams, spoons are set to be a symbol of pride and good luck, who knew?
There could be a subtle connection as to why, in this age of mindfulness and spiritual awareness, we use symbolism to decorate our home. No one can say exactly how and why this trend is on the rise though some argue that the trend is in direct connection with the huge popularity of porridge lately. One thing is certain though, carved spoons do make for great decoration and, as with everything handmade, there's a quality and uniqueness to it that deserves to be on display.
