Gone are the days of a simple deer break; 2012 attracts an exotic angle to the animal trend. African animals have hit on the scene, so get ready for the stampede! — Rachel from Raenovate


Zebra Hand Screen Printed Tea Towel by Branch Handmade – $12

From the African wild, zebras reside in both tiny harems and large herds. In my kitchen, Branch’s hand-screen-printed, cotton zebra towels reside in my towel bar.

High Street Market

Pair of Brass Impala Bookends – $88

Up to 2 thousand impalas roam the continent of Africa, while around 2 impalas roam my bookcase.

Máximo Riera

Maximo Riera Rhino Chair

The rhino is Africa’s representative at sculptor Maximo Riera’s The Animal Chair Collection, his newest and, in my estimation, most dynamic work.


Pronghorn Linen Fabric – $18

Designed by Holli Zollinger, this luscious linen beautifully depicts the sub-Saharan Kob antelope.

Impala Head, Silver – AUD 549

Handmade in South Africa, this significant impala head is sculpted from thick-gauge galvanized wire.


Zebras Wallpaper, Yellow – $199

Way ahead of her time along with the trend, Flora Scalamandré originally designed this art deco background in the 1930s. 80 decades later, it’s back and more beautiful than ever.


Christian May of maison21 anticipated the trend and moved all out in creating this safari of a distance. I spy zebra, gazelle, giraffe and ram.

Stark Carpet

Antelope Carpet

Floor-to-floor antelope carpet is all the rage. I especially love this used as a stair runner.

Jonathan Adler

Ceramic Gazelle – $150

To display the gazelle’s elegant prestige, trendsetter Jonathan Adler made this tall geometric statue from high-fired white stoneware.

Just Scandinavian

Zebra Rug – $6,000

This rug is PETA- and – designer-friendly!

Skinny laMinx

Duikers Pillow Red – $34.53

Skinny laMinx’s Duikers pillow layout was inspired by a 2000-year-old cave drawing located in Cedarberg, South Africa.

Shop Ten 25

Zebra Stool – $399

This stool is versatile and fashionable. By design, the folding camp stool is readily transportable and zebra-tastic!

H & H Home

Pink Cheetah Boudoir Stool – $795

Playing with the hue of a timeless animal print is an enjoyable and easy approach to modernize the conventional pattern. Introduce some “va va voom” into your boudoir with a pink cheetah stool. Meow!

Cardboard Safari

Rambling Robbie Jr.. Moderate Rhino – $30

Child-friendly trends are the best. Your little ones will love overseeing a cardboard safari.


Savannah Story Bust, Gazelle – $68

No animals were hurt in the action of making this papier-mache gazelle.


Mugtail Fawn – $16

This cutie is a fawn, but I am pretty sure it could pass for an African duiker.


Impala Horns – $200

Sculpted from resin, these impala horns blow off a deer stand from the water.

Rifle Paper Co..

Animal Alphabet Chart – $40

The ABCs just got a great deal more intriguing using Rifle Paper Co.’s alphabet chart, which features Africa’s kudu, zebra and lion.

Ocean Lighting

David Hunt Kudu Modern Table Lamp, Black/Gold End with Black/Gold Shade – GBP 140

Kudu horns are generally utilized as a musical tool, but I very much like David Hunt’s lamp interpretation.

Zinc Door

Suzanne Kasler Jaguar Lotion Deep Taupe Wool & Silk Rug – $3,780

While this technically shows jaguar stains, Susanne Kasler’s perfectly patterned rug could easily pass for Africa’s cheetah.
