4. Kusama Pumpkin sculptures by Yayoi Kusama, from MoMA Design Store

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s obsession with pumpkins started as a child in pre-war Japan, when her family owned a plant nursery that farmed kabocha squash. Drawing inspiration from the squash, the Pumpkins have undoubtedly grown to be one of Kusama’s most well-known designs. These lacquer-painted resin figurines are miniature replicas of her signature dotted pumpkins, and will definitely add a dose of vibrance to any coffee tables or shelves.
