I Want a Zebra Too!
Zebras continue to be a very hot trend in 2014 with no signs of slowing down. Faux zebra rugs, pillows, fabric, wallpaper, and art all fit perfectly with Chinoiserie Chic, Hollywood Regency, and Palm Beach Chic style.
But have you noticed how zebra figurines are popping up everywhere? I want one too and have been scouring Etsy, eBay, and my thrift stores and consignment shops with no luck so far. I would love a vintage one especially. I'm surprised that HomeGoods and Z Gallerie haven't picked up on this trend yet. BTW, I got several reports that HomeGoods stores have had a run on bar carts since my post over the weekend on my bar cart find and several followers have emailed me photos of their finds.
Well, my hunt continues for a zebra to bring home. I think this is a real zebra in interior designer Ryan Korban's home. One word - repulsive. This is the last time he will appear on my blog. Here is an excerpt from an interview with him.
ID: What do you like to be surrounded by in your own home?
RK: (Laughs.) A lot of dead animals and fur, some crystals. I love taxidermy, so I have my collection of cranes and peacocks. I like to be surrounded by textural and exotic things, things that feel really special and are borderline fantasy.
I'm sorry, but that is really odd.
