The Edit: Where the Wild Things Are

There’s always been a bit of a stigma surrounding the whole idea of mounting a stuffed animal head onto a wall, but there is no denying the fantastic ambience that they create in the home. This prompted us to put together a selection of wonderfully quirky and modern ‘wild things’ to mount onto your wall, without having to take a guilt ridden trip to the taxidermist. From resin to tweed, and rhino to stag, we have 10 completely desirable, controversyfree animal heads too suit every home.
