Anti-Animal Print? This Trend Will Make You a Convert
Walk on the wild side.
Published Jan 13, 2019 5:48 AM
Animal prints have long held their reign in design. Throughout the years, the concept has manifested itself in a variety of ways—from the bold, in-your-face renditions, which typically involve heavily upholstered furniture, to the understated, featured by way of small trinkets or decorative accessories. The pattern can definitely be a polarizing one and at times, an overwhelming one.
Luckily, a fresh wave of the concept has presented itself within the most recent crop of collections released by our go-to brands and design studios. It’s a literal rendition of the print, which is emulated by a tiger motif and reimagined by way of cheeky and artful pieces. And with that, they can be easily incorporated into just about any decorative aesthetic.
Whimsical, abstract, and brimming with creativity, the picks ahead will make the anti-animal print a convert. Trust us.
