When a new person comes to visit, we notice them noticing our rabbit running loose indoors. We are accustomed to seeing a rabbit around the house. Tofu isn’t a prop, he’s a legitimate member of the household. Still, I always get a kick out of seeing other rabbits in other indoor settings. Especially beautifully styled homes or hanging out on beautiful furniture.
When you have a beautifully designed room or piece of furniture, you need two other things. A rabbit and a talented photographer. For your viewing pleasure, I have collected these images from around the world, relating to bunnies with beautiful interiors or architecture. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have.

Petit-Gris the hawaiian shirt bunny
This photo of Auckland bunny Petit-Gris makes me burst with delight. This photo was shot by New York based photographer Todd Selby at Karen Inderbitzen-Waller and Delphine Avril Planqueel’s lovely home. Karen is photographer and stylist and Delphine is a retoucher and lighting director…Petit-Gris is a stunning supermodel and appears to be a broken black lop. Obviously. More photographs of their amazing home can be viewed at The Selby’s online portfolio here.
Rabbit House (Villa Peet Lelystad)

Kaninen Stampe (Thumper) Reposted with permission
Kira Brandt is a photographer working in København, Denmark. As well as interiors, she photographs food, flowers and editorials. She’s basically a lifestyle image powerhouse. When Kira photographed Danish interior designer Tina Havmøller’s beautiful family home, their pet rabbit named Stampe (Danish for Thumper) wanted in on it. I love how Stampe’s colouring makes it look like he’s wearing a snuggly knitted jumper. I’m also impressed with semi-lop ears. You can view more of Kira’s work at her website www.kirabrandt.dk and the original post (in Danish) at Bo Bedre.
Myra Klose (MYK)
Hare with Bommel Carpet Reposted with permission
When I brush Tofu the bunny, I’m often left with round balls of cream coloured fluff. I could make Tofu a neat rug just like this. The designer of this rug is Myra Klose of MYK and she is one of those designers that blur the lines between art and decor. Her cosy pompom pieces including rugs, chairs and poufs are a pleasure to look at and I’m sure a pleasure to have in the house. She works in Austria and Germany and with her fashion design background, she has an eye for whimsy, structure, texture and colour. What are stylish interiors but fashion for the home?

Eames the bunny and his Ikea-hack hutch
Eames the bunny on Panton Chair with Charlotte the kitten
Newlywed graphic designer and lab geek, Steven and Nicole have excellent taste and website/blog called Design Curiosities. When they adopted a sweet little lop ear bunny they named Eames, a mid century design inspired hutch was the only solution. Eames looks to be a broken sable/tort lop, much like Tofu’s brother Olliver.
Eames also enjoys sitting on his mid century Panton S Chair designed by Verner Panton for Vitra. In 1960, this was the very first single-form injection-moulded plastic chair. One piece of plastic, one piece of furniture. Ground breaking.
Of course, an Eames chair would be too obvious. Far too obvious. Still, I can’t but think that the little Eames sitting on an Eames rocking chair would be hi-la-ri-ous.

Rambo the bunny

Rambo the bunny isn’t a designer, but if you check out his hipster ways, you may forgive me for thinking otherwise. I love this photo of Rambo the bunny in a lovely home setting. You can see Rambo’s facebook page over here: www.facebook.com/EddyRamboBunny.
Note: All photographers/designers were contacted for permission to repost their work, most replied with permission, others I never heard back from. If there are any images here that should not be, I will remove them immediately. Please credit photographers with links if you too would like to spread the bunny love.
Love bunnies? Check out the categories Monday Bunday and Tofu Tuesdays. Please check back tomorrow as there will be an extra special Tofu Tuesday inspired by this post that oozes Scandinavian type charm.
