Trend Watch

According to Metropolitan Home, the next up-and-coming trend, called "Zoocentric," is all about animal inspired home designs.
A stainless steel Kangaroo Bowl, a resin Lion Stand and a resin Arthur Bench (not sure what animal it's inspired by??). I feel hesitant on this trend...I always try to be open to new things and love unique home accents, but if I gave my client a bowl with legs and a tail, they might second guess why they hired me...what are your thoughts on this new trend? Please share!


  1. Interesting trend to watch - thanks for sharing!

  2. not sure how i feel about the animal leg thing. sometimes its subtle and i like it, other times it sort of creeps me out. it just depends on the piece i guess.

    Oh my gosh, that kangaroo bowl is amazing.

    I think this trend has been pretty evident more in the use of wall decals (birds everywhere) as well as the sudden prevalence of antlers in every shape & form.

  4. I think it's a little out there, but I quite like that bowl!

  5. New take on an old trend...
    I have a great antique Duncan Phife dining table with lion paw/claw brass feet...
    What goes around comes around again... sometimes a little more OUT there!
    Good for conversation!

  6. That's for sure! Furniture inspired by animals is nothing new...but you're right about it being a little more OUT there each time!

  7. i like it because it's funny. the black lion stand is something i actually considered buying at one point. the other two look a little too real to me. the tail is hilarious.

  8. Yes, I too love unique home accents & your latest Zoocentric trend is just fantastic.
