Some were absolutely appalled by the use of these once-living creatures as decoration in a home.
While other readers admired the home's, ahem, lively aesthetic.
But one thing we can likely all agree on is that nature and animals are beautiful by design, and we all like having beautiful and inspiring items in our homes.
So for every kind of animal lover, we have created a slideshow of "faux taxidermy," inspired home decor that even PETA would be proud of. No animals were harmed in the making of these items! Tell us what you think.
Would you place any of these items in your home? What do you think of "real" taxidermy decor? Tell us about it in the comments below or share with us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram.
