Into the Wild- Animal Inspired Homewares

Animals, insects, birds – they are everywhere – and what better way to add quirkiness and individuality to our homes. Animal inspired homewares have been creeping up on us for some time now and it continues to grow apace from the traditional country look through to anthropomorphic designs which bring real eccentricity to the look.

Leading the way in animal inspired interiors is Trove. I love Trove for their organic and random patterns on wallpaper – this one looks like a flock of birds rising into the air – how fabulous would that look on your conservatory wall? And, of course, no animal trend would be complete without mentioning Timorous Beasties and their fantastical designs. They take old pieces of furniture and adorn them with beasties for a wonderful contemporary feel. Rory Dobner is at the extreme end of animal whimsy – his imagery on textiles and ceramics brighten up our lives.

Of course we, at Audenza, have a carefully curated selection of pieces from the animal inspired trend from Ami Derbyshire’s delightful Birds of Paradise Lamp to quirky zebra vases and flamingo table lamps.

Another wallpaper design from Trove, but this time on a smaller scale for us with more modest abodes. Whether you want to soften up the industrial look or add whimsical to the vintage look these designs work. Last, but never least, Abigail Brown’s adorable birds. I have loved these adorable creatures from the first and, although I do own one – Percy – who hops about my house, I would love to fill my summerhouse with them for my very own, mess free, avery.

So when it comes to animal inspired homewares, it’s up to you – how quirky do you want to be?

  1. My great-grandfather was a big-game hunter and my cousin, who’s been put in charge with finding homes for all the trophies, has assured me I can have whatever I want. I really haven’t decided yet because I don’t have the space for the giant moose and elk heads! I grew up with taxidermy so it doesn’t creep me out but I know a lot of people don’t like it.

    I love the cat cushion. It has a monocle! How adorable is that?

      Taxidermy is definitely a love it or hate it thing, I love animal inspired interiors, but not sure if I’d like a real head on the wall! How fantastic for you to have such a huge choice to choose from, with sentimental value as well.

    Anything bird-y is a hit with me!
