Who doesn’t love animal prints of all sorts? Leopard spots, tiger stripes, zebra in black and white and on and on. They’re everywhere. But, as part of modern decor? Let’s see about that. If you’re looking for over-the-top, see a recent post we called “Stunning Rooms: Unexpected Touches.” Today we’re talking chic, stylish, restrained use of animal prints. However, some may dispute whether leopard spot wallpaper is restrained, and we accept that as a valid point of view. But overall, we’ve tried to bring you modern good looks with a touch of animal.
At the beginning of this post, you see zebra meets modern meets awesome. A massive mirror reflects it all--a sleek white console table, modern tabletop accessories with a beautiful upholstered bench--totally modern and gorgeous.
Below, an appealing mix of animal print fabrics cover a pair of comfortable lounge chairs and throw pillows on the sofa include animal prints and wide stripes. It’s a lovely light-filled space.
And here’s that modern leopard spot wallpaper. It looks like it belongs in this space with a Mid-Century Eiffel Chair and contemporary white desk. Kudos for a great pairing of wallpaper and furniture!
The solid acacia wood Torrell Bench would look awesome with animal print cushions. The finish is called Woodline mocha.
The Fidel Console Table could elevate a modern foyer and could reach new stylish heights with the addition of a bench upholstered in a charming zebra print. We love that idea.
