Who Says Mobiles Are For Babies?

This kiddy decor item is making a comeback - for adults


The last time we saw a mobile that didn’t play a tinkly tune or have cute critters attached to it was way back in the ’80s — so long ago that we’d almost forgotten about the existence of grown-up versions. Now, these entrancing things are making a comeback and you have every reason to buy one even if you don’t have a baby (just think of them as, um, kinetic art instead of a mobile).

We’re not surprised: They make a cool addition to your décor without being chintzy, and dance mesmerisingly when touched by the slightest breeze. Art, science, visual entertainment and relaxation all rolled into a single decorative piece - why would you not want one for your home right now?
