Made Us Look: Furniture Inspired by Wild Animals

When we tell you that this home decor is inspired by wild animals, we bet we know what you’re thinking: Animal-printed pillows, furry rugs and leather sofas. But wash all of those thoughts away, because Roee Magdassi’s furniture is a completely different approach to animalistic objects.


This Jerusalem-based industrial designer is inspired by the morphology of animals. He used a process of abstraction to create loose interpretations of animal figures in a collection called Tre.

The collection started with drawings of animals you’d see on safari — giraffes, warthogs, ostriches, flamingos — even a praying mantis. Roee sketched over these creatures, simplifying them into basic geometric shapes, which became concepts for 3D objects. The set includes an armchair, a side table and a lamp, all complete with small details that represent animals.

The side table represents a crouching leopard with its three thin legs supporting the spotted surface.

The giraffe-inspired lamp has a long neck, and its base is off-kilter, allowing it to be rocked into two different positions.

The seat was influenced by bulky gorillas and bears, with a cushion resembling a face.

While there’s no word on whether these will ever hit stores, we’re seriously loving the concept of Roee’s collection. Once again, a truly talented designer inspires us with out-of-the-box thinking. This is a way to escape to the jungle with our furniture, without the obvious leopard spots and tiger stripes.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
