But please don’t OVER do it. Less is more: one or two zebra accent pieces will be plenty to add some fun and style while still preserving the sophistication and class of the overall design.
With that said, I love the idea of adding bold prints to any room. Zebra print works well because whether it’s black/white or cocoa/cream, it’s a neutral and can be mixed in with any color scheme. Giraffe print (LOVE) also works just as well and is even a bit more unexpected.
The main objective when adding bold elements to your already existing room is to make sure to keep the style of the room intact. For example, if you have a modern/sleek/fresh style, make sure the chair or rug or ottoman also contains the clean and straight lines.
Here are some possible zebra chair options. Note that even if the chair leans a bit into a “contemporary” style (rounded off edges, hardware accents), you can still work it into a modern room by positioning and styling it appropriately.
Row 1: (1) Gibson Zebra Armchair, $795, Williams-Sonoma (2) Dolce Zebra Print Lounger Chair, $160, Target (3) Brookside Chair, $1,550, Williams-Sonoma
An alternative to adding zebra chairs is adding zebra ottomans, benches or stools. They still provide seating area, but can also work as the stylishly-printed focal point of the room.
Row 1: (1) Zebra Cocktail Ottoman, $999, Macy’s (2) Crosby Stool, $1,550, Williams-Sonoma
Row 2: (3) Presidio Settee, $2,250, Williams-Sonoma
Whichever zebra piece you choose, I suggest picking an option that can work in multiple rooms: accent chair in a living room, sitting area in a bedroom, head of table in dining room. This way, you can switch up your style/rooms without breaking the bank. I leave you with some great ideas on how to incorporate zebra print into your home. Hope this was helpful!
