Inspired by World Market’s love of international travel, adventure and exotic discoveries, the new fall collection, Kingdom Animalia, captures Africa’s beautiful outdoor spirit and has woven it into items for the home. Grounded in warm, neutral colors and natural fabrics, the unique and affordable collection features updated classic and iconic items from Africa’s British Colonial years, including the campaign desk, butterfly chair, and travel trunks. Animal prints and graphic patterns are featured on textiles including cotton dhurrie rugs, toss pillows, faux fur throws, bath towels and shower curtains. Tabletop items include woven natural fiber placemats and beautiful horn serveware; each piece adding a rustic yet sophisticated style to the dining table.

Let the fall season be the season of home entertaining starting with our trunk bar. Wrapped in a woven fiber fabric, the trunk is set on locking casters and includes shelf and drawer space for all your bar glassware and accessories and holds up to two cases of wine – which can also be purchased from World Market’s wide selection of wines from some of the best wine regions in the world.
