Objects of desire: Still loving the zebra... / Elsker fortsatt zebraen...

So the zebra rug has been around the block. A few times actually. Some people really think it's had it's peak, and it's about time to bring something new and fresh to the table, but I still love it. I love the Hollywood Regency feel it brings to a room with the black/white stripes, and there's also the exotic element of something that so doesn't belong in Scandinavia.

In fact, I love it so much, that I just ordered one (a dyed cowhide) from pmDe! Wohoo! It'll most likely arrive in Norway in about 3 weeks.

Zebrateppet har i flere år vært superpopulært (ikke i Norge, men spesielt på det amerikanske markedet), og mange synes det er litt oppbrukt og at det er på tide å finne på noe nytt. Men jeg digger uttrykket til teppet, og Hollywood Regency-elementet det tilfører et rom med de sort/hvite stripene, og det eksotiske elementet av noe som absolutt ikke hører hjemme i Skandinavia.

Faktisk digger jeg det så mye at jeg bestilte meg et farget zebrakuskinn fra pmDe på fredag! Wohoo! Det kommer mest sannsynlig til å "lande" i Oslo om ca tre uker.

I don't care what anyone says, the zebra rug {when done right} always looks chic to me. I love it!

Jeg liker sebra! Det var en kobra som ikke så bra... :-) Jeg har kjøpt et sebrastoff og planlegger å sy sebrakjole. Men har ikke kommet så langt ennå da, hehe. Skikkelig sebraskinn er kult da. Jeg så et helt kongeblått soverom med et hvitt chintz-sengeteppe og de hadde hengt et gigantisk sebraskinn over senga. Utrolig kult!

Congrats on your purchase! It's not or me, but when done well (like the ones you've shown) it can be quite... perfect. And I love how it works in these very different rooms.

I have agree with everyone else. I think zebra will always be chic! I can't wait to see it in place!

I love the zebra too. It seems like you could really put it in any room and it's all of sudden oh so chic.
