Miss Pokeno Taxidermy

It really concerns me that taxidermy appears to be coming back in fashion - and nothing is a better indication of that than this Miss Pokeno furniture collection.

One of the leaders in this field is vegetarian Alannah Currie, (yes from the 1980s pop group Thompson Twins). Alannah has reinvented herself as an upholsterer whose pieces appear under the name Miss Pokeno.

She revamps vintage pieces by incorporating taxidermy in the parts of furniture you normally wouldn’t look at twice at. Visually, there is no questioning the fact it makes a very strong statement, but ethically, it just turns my stomach. It would be a really interesting top of conversation for a dinner party, but would you really want to fill your home with dead animals? Nope, me neither.
