Faux fruit is gracing Grandma’s dining table again. And yours, too?

Designers are seeing a renewed appetite for fake foods amid the pandemic-driven resurgence of colorful and kooky maximalist home decor, The New York Times reports. Yes, along with needlepoints and chinoiserie, people are now turning to the paraffin wax apples reminiscent of your grandmother’s kitchen for interior design inspiration. Popular culinary objets d’art today span the food pyramid, from charcuterie candles and cardboard cakes to faux red wine spills. With many artists drawing on kitsch and playfulness to fuel their creativity, be sure to check twice before biting into any fruit displays this holiday season. —Matthew Sedacca
