ANIMALISTIC

by Marisa Marcantonio


Birds if a feather flock together, as the saying goes. From a herd of pigs to a parliament of owls, animals had their day at the gift show. Here is an assortment of those that narrowly avoided a banal life in the zoo.

Gien introduced a pattern with sea creatures centered on dinner plates.

Oly Studio's Petite Kedan Stool complete with cloven hooves and a curly lamb top.

A flight of swallows fly across the surface in a block printed ironing board cover from Simrin. Why not elevate an everyday activity?

5 ducks angle for the best view in an adorable standing lamp from Aid to Artisans.

A precious little mouse on a tiny needlepoint pillow from August Morgan. He has escaped his fellow horde...

Papier mache animal heads are the result of recycling, not big game hunting. From Aid to Artisans.

A peacock painting on cream silk from Belle Chasse Home.

Curious little piggies at Roost.

A pack of dogs as hooks from Homart.
