Trend Alert: Non-Souvenir Matryoshka Dolls

As a kid, I always hoped to have a generous relative vacation in Russia, so I'd wind up with a set of Matryoska nesting dolls to play with. I still think the dolls are cute, inventive, and entertaining, but would like to rid my home of airport souvenirs. So, I've been happy to see the Matryoshka imagery and shape creatively re-envisioned as home accents and other furnishings.


The nesting dolls have inspired the imaginative designs of pillowcases, quilts, plates, dish cloths, piggy banks, chairs, and even vodka bottles! Possibly my favorite Matryoshka-inspired design is the Unasukin, an adorably cute little collectable Japanese doll that helps you make decisions by responding to your questions with a nod or shake of the head. Nod your head to the traditional Russian design by getting your hands on one of the products below.
