Whether Shark Week inspires you to shark up your home, or you simply have an affinity for sea-themed décor, here are six fun furniture finds for the shark lover.
Shark Head Wall DÉcor
Make a bold statement with your sea-loving style. A life-size shark jutting from your wall will definitely be a conversation starter (or stopper for unsuspecting guests). Expertly hand-painted to look alive, this shark head wall mount is made from durable materials using cast resin mixed with fiberglass.
Sharks Reef Bahamas Mural
(starting at $219)
The ultimate in shark-themed decorating, this life-like ocean mural turns your living room or bedroom into a gorgeous underwater sea world. You can buy preset sizes or even customize the size of the mural to fit any wall in your home. The mural comes in three different materials depending on how you want to apply it.
Artist Mac McKeown of Sea Art Studio knows how to bring a marine feel into any home with his custom-made ocean-themed décor. Our favorite is Eva's Reef, a framed illusion of underwater coral reef and sharks. Look closely -- the sharks' tails are actually fossilized shark's teeth.
Brass Patina Shark Sculpture
For a more subtle approach to shark décor, this brass patina shark sculpture can add an impressive but not overwhelming nautical touch to your home or office. At 15 inches high, it will go swimmingly on a table or bookshelf.
Sharks Switch Plate
Ideal for an ocean-themed bathroom or shark-themed kids room, this sharks switch plate features two great whites baring their teeth, all under a durable gloss finish. Plate comes fitted for light switches or outlets.
Circo Fabric Drawer Shark
Perhaps it's your kiddos that are the shark lovers in the family. This toothy fabric shark drawer is a less scary and functional item that can be a catch-all for your kiddos' clutter. Openings at the middle and at the front, where the shark's mesh mouth opens, give you and your kids easy access to their toys or other stored items. Best yet, when the avid shark fans turn their interest to other things, the shark drawer can be folded up and put away.
