Animal House

The thought of a bear in the lounge and a line of ants in the kitchen is a lot more appealing when they're designed by mid century Danish furniture masters.

To be honest, if there's one thing we love more than the created object, it's the natural world. So what can be better than furniture inspired by animals. Here we celebrate the exotic creatures of the world and the eponymous chairs created by some of the best loved furniture designers. Alongside these iconic pieces are the contemporary works of artists and illustrators. Enjoy.
