With every animal print you can imagine being worked into fashion design, across the high street, it was inevitable that it would also feature strongly in homeware design too.
We headed Zara Home and discovered the brand who has sell out animal pieces in their clothing collections, also has some key pieces in homeware using patterns inspired by zebras, leopards and snakes.
The bathroom, bedroom and lounge are all catered for.
