When my friend first moved to Africa she mentioned that she loved zebra rugs, but wasn't sure how that would work into a room.
You can take the safari reference literally and mix it in with dark woods and other wordily elements.
The zebra can also be used to add some edge and offset girly glamour.
Perfect stand-out piece in neutral or all white rooms.
Don't be afraid to use the rug to lighten the mood of any room and add some quirkiness.
