Tuesday Trend- Animal Sculptures

via

I'm feeling a little wild this week with no work to tame me, so I thought I'd wrangle together a collection of some of my favorite animal sculptures used in interior design.

Animal sculptures are a tricky thing- they can definitely fall into the creepy, taxidermic (is that a word?) downright-scaring-guests-away category.  However, the right piece can really make or break the design of a room.  Some designers layer in animal sculptures in a peek-a-boo manner while others choose to make them the focal point of a room.  Personally, I love the quirk, humor and unexpectedness of an animal sculpture- it's like a living punchline.

What do you think?  Would you ever / do you decorate with animal sculptures?  Check out my faves and then let's discuss:

First reaction: Is that a deer? Yes, yes it is.

The pièce de résistance- a life-sized cowstriche (also featured here).  Design by Julie Hillman, clearly my soul sister.   This guy might be a little loco, but think of the possibilities!  I'd call him The Closer.  Why?  Why not.


So, what do you think?  Are you wild too?
