I am aware, of course, that antlers and animal heads and random pieces of horn left conspicuously lying around are popular these days, but Pinterest and the decorating magazines have failed to win me over. Bend, one of the new lines we've started to carry in the store, has an alternative to real body parts in your home. Check out their trophy heads, which they call Geometric Animals.
|Here's Mama Bear as a stand-alone on a wall.|
|And here's Cub used as hangers for clothes.|
|And Papa Buffalo in all his majesty...|
|Or Water Buffalo, a little less dignified with someone's shirt in his mouth|
Bend has taken organic shapes and created digital versions that are represented in a mathematical, engineered form. Available in black, white or orange, Geometric Animals may look simple, but in actuality they are created with bends and angles that are the result of complex formulas. At the same time, they add a little whimsy to your home without requiring an animal to give up the ghost for you. And, anyway, where are you going to find a real animal head in orange?
