Trends come and go in the interiors world, but safari never goes out of style. Perhaps it’s because it can be paired with classic or contemporary schemes, can act as a neutral against bolder patterns, works wonderfully with natural textures such as leather, rattan, wicker or faux fur – or maybe just because we all fancy ourselves smack bang in the middle of a scene from Out of Africa.
Either way, it’s one of our all-time faves and if you don’t want to fully commit and turn your living space into some kind of glamping zone packed with predators and decked in wall-to-wall zebra print, then take some inspo from our galleries below and go wild with safari-inspired occasional chairs, artworks and accessories. Go on, you know you want to….
