Animal furniture hasn’t been popular — mainstream popular, anyhow, for a while. A long while. Since the Victorian Era, really, some 120-years ago, when an article called “Animal Furniture” was published in a then-popular magazine called The Strand. The essay was accompanied by photographs of furniture made by, and made to look like, real animals: a liquor stand made from an elephant’s foot, a doorstop made from an ostrich’s claw, and a plush chair with tigers skin for upholstery and tigers paws for feet. Now it’s 2017, Donald Trump is our president, and animal furniture is back — albeit, for the most part, more faux and less anatomically correct. (It seems like we might have the Haas Brothers to thank for this.) So you can get in on the (occasionally off-putting, but mostly charming) trend: some animal-footed tables to liven up your living room. Heavy Duty Angle Bracket
Sofa Bed Hinges This copper table is the perfect animal-foot starter piece: small, circular, and plain on top. Its legs are sweetly ribbed, and its feet are, happily, cartoonish and unrealistic. Plus, it’s affordable!
