Nothing says childhood like stuffed animals. But nothing says “maybe I’m a serial killer” quite like stitching a bunch of plush critters together. This is why the furniture from AP Collection really has us conflicted. On one hand, memories of curling up in a pile of beloved toys spark joy. On the other, incorporating endangered animals into your home décor is kinda weird. If you can get past the Cruella de Vil vibes, the collection of bar stools, chairs, love seats, and foot rests could be for you. Check out the full collection. There’s no prices listed for these limited edition items so we assume it follows the “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” plan.
We learned about this collection on Technabob. There’s also a virtual 3D showroom to get the full effect of these artistic animal amenities. Pandas, flamingos, polar bears, and even a full African safari—name an animal and you can probably sit on it. The most stunning may be the peacock chair. Stuffed animals on the seat’s surface, with real peacock feathers lining the back. Only 25 were made, so act fast.
If the designers need more ideas for themes, it’s always a good time to listen to Mr. Burns sing “See My Vest” on The Simpsons. His clothing collection made 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 her theme song when looking at these. If she doesn’t scare you, no evil 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 about Pikachu body pillows. Or just reconnect with those beloved stuffed animals you still have in a box somewhere.
