Six Sun-Inspired Styles Celebrating the Solar Eclipse

Provided by DRS and Associates

Cosmic Commemoration, Sun-Inspired Styles

On August 21, the moon will momentarily align with the sun, blocking its rays and producing a rare natural phenomenon: a total solar eclipse—one observable across the United States. While this marks a noteworthy cosmological moment for seasoned astronomers, the excitement generated by more casual stargazers has gradually infused the public with a degree of enthusiasm for the incoming colossal yet transitory occurrence. This happy anticipation has filtered into the sphere of interior design, leading our team to curate a list featuring a number of products drawing inspiration from the sun.
