Animal Feet in Furniture and Home Decor
Animal feet in furniture and home decor are popping up everywhere, since our society has always had a fetish with feet. Contrary to what images you may conjure up in your mind with the mention of “foot fetish” , this trend is completely innocent -a celebration of the feet of our four legged, furry friends. You may ask wonder where designers get inspiration for their quirky ideas and the answer is simple – they look to the past.

Recently there has been a resurgence in the use of animal feet in furniture, with some styles from manufacturers such as Oly Studio almost producing designs from the past to a tee.
I absolutely adore these stools above, but I’m not sure why, but I’m thinking that it may be the shape of the legs and how they bow inwards toward the top. The chair is equally as whimsical as it is chic, with clean white legs, a hair on hide seat and nailhead trim.
