Over here, over there, on top of there, under here, up there, it’s the timeless zebra print, it’s lovely and happily it’s in all places you look.

In Darryl Carter’s D.C. Townhouse, he uses stunning antique bordello doors behind the bed which compliment the zebra patterned rug with it’s black edging across from the bed under the curved desk ELLE DECOR
Using a touch of a zebra pattern in a space can add a bit of whimsy, a touch of class (maybe a bit of a stretch for some) and a nice pop that most rooms can certainly use a little of. You don’t need much, for a little bit of zebra goes a long way.

Some of my favorite attention grabbing products in zebra that are small enough to inject into a space, but yet are capable of creating a big impact are:
These benches OHT, are versatile enough to go in almost any room in the house and are one of my absolute personal favorites.
For an office, this lovely leather desk chair would make coming to work fun. Accented w/zebra and nail head trim it’s a show stopper from OHT.
Oly Studios offers up in my opinion some of the best faux zebra products around:
Oliver Faux Zebra Mirror from Oly Studio would certainly make an impression in a foyer or look just as sharp in a powder room as shown above.
Hilary bench from Oly Studio is available in a short or long version and is stunning in either length.
