{trendspotting: sheep stools}

Well, it seems it's apparent that if you happen to have a sheep in your living room you are uber trendy! Who woulda thought? This whimsical piece has been popping up all over blogland!!






Hans-Peter Krafft sheep stool $575-1200
They are actually a little pricey, and I'm not even sure how comfy they would be as a stool or ottoman. But seriously, how cute would one of these be in a nursery?

*Update*

After a couple of your comments I searched for the sheep with black bodies, and it turns out these babies are hard to come by! You can find them on 1st dibs but it will run you about $5000 {it's literally a vintage (1975) piece of art, I wouldn't dare sit on it :)}. Anyone know of a less expensive knock off?

totally agree on the nursery part but not sure for any other part of the house.

The ones in the entry are amusing and fun. Yes, a nursery, how adorable that would be! Janell

love the sheep, I'd happily do that, but I do have kids, that may be influencing - BUT I LOVE that first room (yellow curtains!!!) wow!

I'm right there with you, they'd be great in a nursery, but I dont love them in other parts of the house.

I've been noticing those too!!! YES for nursery, NO for living room (for my house.)

I put one in one of my design boards recently- I'm all over them- love love love...every space needs a little whimsy in my opinion and these are certainly that.

HA they're sooo cute. Hard to resist buying I'm sure.

Yes, they would be cute in a nursery but I would not put them anywhere else in the house, I would feel like they are watching me:)

My mom bought a little mini sheep from a gift store the other day that was too cute. Maybe we could settle for mini versions that are more affordable!

I've actually been thinking I might need one. Could use any animal kind of animal stool! Do you where you find the black nosed one?

So funny that they're everywhere! I think in a kid's room would be perfect :)

I've noticed this trend lately too! They are definitely very cute, and I love them in VW's living room, but the price is way too high!! I bet you could find something similar at a toy store lol!

I dig, anywhere in the house wouldn't work with just any decor though. You'd have to have the right look.
