Antlers - Why You Should Add Them to Your Décor Now

They might not seem like an obvious addition to your home. Where could antlers possibly fit in with your chic, modern contemporary style? 

You’d be surprised. Incorporating antlers into your home could have bigger appeal than you think.

Antlers aren’t just for log cabins and your grandpa’s trophy hunting room anymore. They are trending hard in the Pinterest world and just about every big furniture dealer is making use of them in their catalogs.

There is a versatility to antlers in décor that if done right, can add a soft elegance to any décor style.

 

Antlers on the Wall

This is one antler application you are probably already familiar with – antler mounts. You’ll see them in all ranges of décor (if you haven’t yet, you’ll start noticing them now).

This high-fashion office uses antlers in generous amounts, which can really work if done correctly. If overdone, it might start looking a little scary, but everyone’s tastes are different…

Antlers with Function

Sure, they look good hanging on the wall, but why not give those forms some function. Antlers make great towel and coat racks. They can even be used as door handles.

This minimalistic coat rack makes good use of the antlers and stays true to the room’s muted ambience.

Used in a bathroom or kitchen, antlers can be perfect for keeping those towels off the floor or the counter.

Antlers as Accent or Center Pieces

At Great Blue Heron, we carry several pieces that can help get you started with decorating your home with antlers.

Add some flair to your antler decor by opting to feature them in a floral arrangement like this Distressed Wood with Antler and Pods.



Use antlers in a dough bowl centerpiece for your dining table or as a rustic touch for an entryway table.

 

Light Fixtures

You’ve likely seen quite a few antler chandeliers by now. They can command any room they are in and add a cozy, natural warmth to your space.

Here’s a rustic hanging light fixture that combines trendy Edison bulbs with the ruggedness of a rope and antlers.
