Sculptural Objects

I’ve long had a thing for Alessi’s Blow Up Citrus Basket. I love how modern and unique it is, and I’m really drawn to the random assortment of straight lines. I don’t really see myself using it as a citrus basket, but just a decorative object (probably in one of the squares of my Expedit). 
Then yesterday I was walking past Gracious Home and this beauty caught my eye:
The  Tubular Burst Sculpture by Dwell Studio. I absolutely love this, and it took me a minute to realize how similar it is to the Blow Up Basket. There’s just something about the random assortment of straight lines that I love…they both remind me of Kelly Wearstler’s Channels Pillow in that way. Just my style! I can’t decide which one I love more but I’m leaning towards the Dwell sculpture (probably because I’m obsessed with gold as of late – a side effect of being a blogger, I think!). 
What say you? Are you a fan of these pieces, and which do you like better?

    I'm such a sucker for gold so the second one is my favorite, but they are both beautiful pieces!
