You might think taxidermy is frightening or macabre, but if an animal is already dead, it can be an ethical way to celebrate the beauty of nature. Randall points out that it’s a step away from the drab, IKEA-ized furnishings we’ve become accustomed to too. “There’s a desperation to reintroduce character to our homes,” she says. “Most of the animals we use are shot as vermin and their bodies either used as food for other animal or left to rot. By giving them a purpose, they become quite beautiful.
