Design Trends: What the Zebra!?
Zebras (/ˈzɛbrə/ ZEB-rə or /ˈziːbrə/ ZEE-brə) are several species of African equids (horse family) united by their distinctive black and white stripes. Their stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual. They are generally social animals that live in small harems to large herds. Unlike their closest relatives, horses and asses, zebras have never been truly domesticated.
Lately everywhere I look there seems to be; a zebra here, a zebra there, a zebra everywhere! These striped members of the horse family are infiltrating all areas of modern day design! You can see them on the walls, in the bed, on your floor, and even around your neck! While animal prints have always been quite popular, the zebra seems to rise above the rest…. designers are not only using their stripes, but incorporating their entire image, and celebrating it!
