The slow, forward march animal trophies as décor got its start about a year ago. Now these pieces for the wall are showing up more often for adults and even for kids.
The best new trophies come with a twist. They are slathered in metallic or made of delicate-and-unexpected materials. For kids, a tongue-in-cheek attitude means trophies look less like souvenirs from big-game hunting adventures and more like storybook characters. Some of them double as wall hooks. Others suggest plush animals.
From rhinos and horses to pigs and sheep, trophies will have an increasing impact décor, for both everyday and Christmas in 2016 and 2017.
