I've seen statues of dogs and horses and fabrics with quirky monkeys used to great effect in interiors, although I've never personally warmed up to them. The other day I came across this adorable ceramic elephant and fell in love. I know one of the main principles of design is to EDIT but he is so cute...It makes me wonder if elephants will join the ranks of the foo dog?
