Gwendi contacted me about the colorful monkey rug in our store. She explained that she actually has two furry children that happen to be monkeys and they really needed this rug for their room. Of course, I agreed that the monkeys definitely needed a monkey rug for their room! This monkey rug is especially nice because it is hand-hooked in 100% pure wool. It’s 48 inches wide and the colors and details are spectacular. Judge for yourself from the photo, and then I’ll show you a photo of Gwendi and a real live monkey!
Gwendi lives in Texas and explained that she has two monkeys, Buddy, who is a Java macaque, and Gizmo, who is a marmoset. As I’ve never met a monkey personally before, I asked Gwendi to describe their personalities.
“Buddy is my lovebug. He hugs and kisses me. He sleeps with me every night. He is a big snuggler. And of course he loves to groom me. He is the sweetest thing – he is my furry kid, no doubt!” This is Buddy, snuggling up with Gwendi in the photograph!
You don’t have to have your own monkey at home to enjoy monkey decor! So if you like the monkey rug and you are a fan of monkeys, then maybe you like these other monkey decor pieces.
This is a charming new Scarborough House monkey soap dish featuring a cheerful and very smartly dressed monkey offering soap on a banana leaf. Crafted in brass with a brown patina and a verdigris brass patina, the monkey is more than 10 inches high and he stands on a sturdy and sleek black stone base. The monkey statue would be an elegant addition to a guest bathroom especially, as he politely offers soap to your guests. The details on the brass monkey are superb, right down to the details in the clothing and the expression on his face.
We also love this noble OK Casting standing monkey candleholder. The classic style will look great in a traditional living room, dining room, hallway or bedroom.
The monkey candleholder is crafted by OK Casting in cast resin, and it is hand-cast and hand-painted with stunning details. Every piece made by OK Casting is hand-crafted to order, and the custom-made candlestick is a generous 17.5 inches high.
Holding two candles aloft, the monkey is sure to make a bold impression.
I’ve never written a blog post about interior design for a monkey room before… it’s bananas! But I hope you’ve enjoyed a little monkey business and you can check out all our monkey decor in our online store.
