Trend Alert: Reimagined Hunting Trophies

I'm willing to bet that most of you don't decorate with hunting trophies — those stuffed deer heads and mounted antlers typically found in lodges. I, for one, would never dream of hanging a deer head in my house. But I love that so many modern designers are reinterpreting the iconic look with antler-adorned accents.

From super-high end antler chandeliers — like the famed $1,500 fixture from The Future Perfect — to cheeky $10 wall plaques, there's a piece of hunting-inspired home decor to suit almost every style. Check out some of my favorite finds by clicking on the photos belows, and please, tell me what you think of this off-kilter look.

Unless your an avid sportsman, I can't imagine that anyone would think that antlers are a good idea.

No thanks on the antlers! Still feels like a deer head hanging on the wall.

I like this trend in more consumable items like a candlestick that wont break the bank to "retire" later. But I don't buy in for a major purchase.

I was recently in a bar in Seattle that had taxidermy and botched paintings lining the walls - it was a groovy look for a bar, different and in a strange way charming - but never in my home. No thanks!

I wouldn't say that this is a new trend, since taxidermy has been on the walls of hipsters for the last 6 or 7 years... it's a huge phenomenon now, going in waves including themed restaurants, anything one can think of...although I'd say for the most part it started in 'New Amsterdam' (NYC) and Amsterdam.

omg. this just reminds me of the REAL antlers and what not my dad put up in our "texas cottage" themed house. scary! they do make great accent pieces but DO NOT GO OVERBOARD and put more than 2! 2 at most is more than enough. my dad has like 3 and......yikes

I'll pass on the deer antlers, thank you. I have an uncle who is the Great White Hunter. My aunt gave him one room in the house to showcase all of his "trophies." We call it the room of death.

I love antlers--but then again my favorite store in San Francisco is Paxton Gate, which specializes in mixing gorgeous flora with fossils, rocks, skulls, bones, and antlers, so there you go. I also want to point out that bucks shed their antlers every year, so it is possible to get real antlers from simply walking around in the woods (I've done it), or from a deer farm, so interior decor made with real antlers isn't necessarily something that an animal was killed for. However, that being said, ethical hunting is the most responsible way to act as an omnivore. If you eat meat, you've got to understand that someone died for it, and I'd rather eat healthy, happy, acorn-fed venison over caged, abused, corn-fed and highly vaccinated beef any day of the week. And I say that as someone who's hunted. There's nothing awesome about killing an animal for food, but it is so much more respectful and environmentally responsible than grabbing a styrofoam container of ground chuck from Safeway.

I just don't get this whole trend. I don't care if it's real or not, I don't want any of it in my home.

ick, ick, ick! I agree with the above two comments! :)

I think the whole reimagined antlers thing is one of those kitchy, ironic, trends that may seem like a good idea at the time, but will ultimately end up leaving your space looking dated and very "what was I thinking?"

I would never do this -- even though the stuff from Urban Outfitters, etc. isn't made from animals, it would just remind me of the hunting that still goes on. Not for me!

Ugh, no thanks. My father is a hunter, and he has tons of antlers and "trophies" all over the walls at his place. I hated it growing up and I would never put any of that stuff on my walls.
