If you’re looking for some tongue-in-cheek, slightly ironic wall decoration, look no farther than Cardboard Safari [2]. The Charlottesville–based e-tailer draws inspiration from nature and relies on sustainable and recycled materials to bring their designs to life. Each cardboard [3] animal is laser-cut for precision and flat-packed [4] to make shipping easier and less wasteful. In addition to their signature ‘trophy’ heads (bison, deer, moose, and rhino), Cardboard Safari offers full-bodied animals and specialty pieces like hearts (for Mother’s Day), trees (for the holidays), and skulls (for Halloween, we hope). Each item is made from recycled cardboard and arrives with assembly instructions (part of the fun is putting together the puzzle [5]).
