Ménagerie creatures for your home

If you’ve seen lots of pictures of our house, then you’ve noticed our ‘Bunny’ and “Cat” cushions that we have all over the house. I love our little animal cushions. I have a few from H&M and Urban Outfitters too. Well, my bunny and cat cushions are from a local artist called “Ménagerie” > an English word that was used to describe any collection of exotic animals that pre-dated the existence of zoos. It is now also used to describe an odd or eclectic assortment of things, which Cecile (the artist) I thought was quite apt for her animal cushions. She likes the name because it is derived from the French word ‘ménage’ meaning household, and says that hers is very important to her. You can read a full interview with Cecile over here

If you like her cushions (and I’m sure you will) you can purchase these handsome animal friends for your couch over here. You can view a list of her stockists here, but your quickest bet is probably shopping online with Hello Pretty who also stocks them. They cost R280 each which is super cheap in terms of designer cushions. I bought the ‘Espresso’ and ‘Peter Rabbit’ cushions about 2 years ago at a market in town. Lucky find! I know my friend Angie (Tiny Pony) has some too. They really are adorable, huggable and add so much character to your living space. We’re getting more to add to the boys’ room, but more on that soon. I’ve been working on the boys’ room in the new house for weeks to get it ‘just’ right for them. I can’t wait to show you! In the meantime, how sweet are these Ménagerie creations?
