Animal print seems to be the one look that never goes out of style. It always seems to find its way into the latest trends, yet can also be considered a classic. Our explanation for the omnipresence of animal print? It’s actually one of the most versatile motifs there is. It fits as seamlessly into a glamorous room as it does a rustic one.
Here, we’re put together a few examples of rooms that show just how adaptable the look is, along with a selection of our favorite animal print throw pillows.
The glamorous look. When paired with neutral hues, metallic accents, rich fabrics like silk and velvet, and faux fur, animal prints like leopard and zebra take on a luxe look.
Traditional: For a traditional space, it’s best to stick with leopard or tiger print, which have the most classic feel. It makes a beautiful upholstery update for antique chairs, and pairs nicely with elaborate design details like cabriole furniture legs and gilded mirrors.
Modern: A modern aesthetic, on the other hand, calls for the high-contrast, black and white simplicity of zebra prints. Hide rugs or throw pillows make ideal options for incorporating the print, since they add texture and an organic quality to a minimalist space.
On-trend: For an of-the-moment look, simply pair animal prints with trending design elements like gallery walls, saturated brights, flokati rugs, or geometric prints.
Rustic: In a rustic space, it’s all about the cowhide. For an easy style recipe, pair it with elements like exposed wood beams, earth tones, and prints reminiscent of a lodge or cabin.
Now that we’ve seen how versatile the look is, here are a few of our favorite animal print throw pillows from our collection:
