Taxidermy is the New Black?

Having the chance to travel to Austin, Texas this past week, I truly experienced the city's slogan - 'Keep Austin Weird' after exploring the city's design Scene. One downtown store in particular had many animal infused furniture pieces. Happily taking pictures and touching all the unique items, it wasn't until I started talking to the store clerk about being surprised as to how soft the faux furs are that I was informed that it was in fact not faux, just fur. Apparently taxidermy is making a big come back, lets hope this trend doesn't last.

oh dear...

it's the foot of a lamp.


Austin, keep on being weird!
