Birds if a feather flock together, as the saying goes. From a herd of pigs to a parliament of owls, animals had their day at the gift show. Here is an assortment of those that narrowly avoided a banal life in the zoo.

Gien introduced a pattern with sea creatures centered on dinner plates.

Oly Studio's Petite Kedan Stool complete with cloven hooves and a curly lamb top.

A flight of swallows fly across the surface in a block printed ironing board cover from Simrin. Why not elevate an everyday activity?

5 ducks angle for the best view in an adorable standing lamp from Aid to Artisans.

A precious little mouse on a tiny needlepoint pillow from August Morgan. He has escaped his fellow horde...

Papier mache animal heads are the result of recycling, not big game hunting. From Aid to Artisans.

A curious owl perches on a log at Vellum.

A peacock painting on cream silk from Belle Chasse Home.

Curious little piggies at Roost.

A pack of dogs as hooks from Homart.

I love all of the beasties. And I second Quintessence--the lamb stool is wonderful, especially since I can't fit a Lalanne into my budget. Have a great week-end.

You are so right, animals were front and center at the show, implented into furniture, pillows, lamps, just about anything home decor related...I happen to like the whimsical touch they provide.....great highlight.

Cannot get enough of animals. The paper mache animal heads put a new spin on trophies.
