Plush furniture is both nostalgic and spooky


Nothing says childhood better than soft toys. But nothing says “maybe I’m a serial killer” like putting together a bunch of stuffed creatures. This is why the furniture from AP Collection really puts us in conflict. On the one hand, memories of curling up in a pile of beloved toys spark joy. On the other hand, incorporating endangered animals into your home decor is a little weird. If you can get past the Cruella de Vil vibes, the collection of bar stools, chairs, loveseats and ottomans might be for you. Discover the complete collection. There are no prices listed for these limited edition items, so we’re assuming they follow the “if you have to ask, you can’t afford” plan.

We discovered this collection on Technabob. There is also a 3D virtual showroom to take full advantage of these artistic animal amenities. Pandas, flamingos, polar bears and even a full African safari – name an animal and you’ll probably be able to sit on it. Perhaps the most amazing is the peacock chair. Stuffed animals on the seat surface, with real peacock feathers lining the backrest. Only 25 were made, so hurry.

If the designers need more theme ideas, it’s always a good time to listen to Mr. Burns sing “See My Vest” on The simpsons. His clothing collection made up of animals, including endangered ones, rivals this furniture. And while the most recent iteration of Cruella didn’t have a Dalmatian obsession (yet), it’s hard not to hear its theme song when watching them. If she doesn’t scare you, no bad thing will.

For those of us who literally want to curl up with our childhood but can’t afford one of these chairs, don’t forget the Pikachu body pillows. Or just reconnect with those beloved stuffed animals you still have in a box somewhere.
