Everywhere I look lately, everything is coming up Zebra. Animal prints are very much in Vogue right now, but especially the classic and stately Zebra. I have heard it said that no two Zebras have the same stripes. I was fortunate to go on a Safari in Africa and to see herds of these beautiful animals. An amazing sight, indeed. They have tufts of fur that stand up along their spine. I remember them being quite sturdy, like a Pinto Pony. Most of the Carpets that we are seeing now are stripes simulated on cow hides, unless you are Joni of Cote de Texas and get to go to the famous Round Top market held twice yearly in Texas. She managed to score the real thing. As you will see in the following pictures zebra carpets can be laid on a bare floor or layered over carpets. Just make sure your carpet has a short pile. So without further ado, I will honor this wonderful animal species that is seen in some of the chicest abodes.........

These are real Zebra carpets that Joni of Cote de Texas bought at the Round Top market in Texas with heads et al. Just be careful you don't trip over the head.

There is even a classic fabric that Brunschwig and Fils has done for years called "Le Zebre"
And what about a zebra striped ceramic stool?

Pieced together these make a stunning large area carpet, complete with straight edges. I love the orange sofa & ceiling, and the wall of shiny black bookcases.
