Creatures of habit: Bringing some wildlife into your home

Creatures of habit: Bringing some wildlife into your home

They intrigue us, cheer us up, and sometimes they can scare us. There’s something about little creatures, particularly the wild ones, that fascinate us. Whether it’s the funny noises they make, their human-like reactions or their familial ties, you just can’t turn away from wildlife.

We wanted to honour our furry friends by giving them a special place in our homes, in ways that don’t involve hides or taxidermy.

I want to catch this bunny! Hetty Hare Table Lamp promises to attract some attention with her intriguing ears and proud stature.

Hetty Hare Table Lamp,  around €151, Graham and Green
