We’ve got a debate on our hands. On Tuesday night’s Design Star episode, the judges gushed over Rachel’s white moose head atop a black background. Here on the blog, y’all aren’t so sure.
Reader transient1 says: We have seen those heads turn up on one design show or another every season for the past half dozen years or so. In 2040 those will be the go-to props whenever a movie (or whatever video-type entertainment is available) is looking to create an early 21st century styled room.
And llxt added: The moosehead was a total do-over of A) David Bromstad himself and B) Antonio’s pink birds, which were much more unexpected. Definitely not something to win over.
But reader Gail sided with Vern and Genevive: I loved Rachel’s moose head…It was a sculpture…a real head would have been much larger!!! So glad that Rachel won.
When I polled the Design Star cast on their design loves and pet peeves, feelings on taxidermy (real or faux) were mixed. And it’s definitely a ongoing motif in the design world as part of an overall nature-inspired trend — check out more examples of faux taxidermy over at our Design Happens blog.
