Why do people decorate their homes with dead animals? Studio Jon Male has created a line of clever oriental rugs that are both animal friendly and aesthetically pleasing. The colorful rugs were designed by Sean Kelley and Jason Miller to subvert and play on the bourgeoise trappings of the traditional Persian rug – they call them “domestic trophies for the new suburban colonialist.”

Studio Jon Male‘s trophy rugs are shaped like animal skin rugs and decorated with abstract oriental patterns. We love how the pieces offer a design-savvy, animal-friendly alternative to grotesque hunting trophies. They’re available for purchase at the designers’ official site and cost $1,500.
