Sinuous forms are making waves in the design world—and designer Jennifer R. Mendelsohn is taking note. 

Jennifer Mendelsohn

On what sparked this trend: “I think the popularity of this look, which harkens back to the Art Nouveau movement, draws from the current feminist mood and the desire for connection and comfort in a high-tech world.“
