Rainbows and unicorns are things of my past, but somehow I never outgrew my affection for bunnies. Floppy ears and fluffy tails, I figured, were my own particular design Achilles heel—but then I discovered I'm far from alone. For lots of sophisticates, designers included, the love of rabbit is a life-long affair. Above: By Finnish designer Ina Herkert, Kani the Wooden Rabbit is hand carved from birch. Available at NAMA for £32. Above: From one of our favorite shops, New Zealand (and online) boutique Father Rabbit , a bunny duvet. The bed cover is currently sold out, but the same floppy-eared fellow is available as a  Bunny Framed Print ; $99 AUD. Above: The British have never been bashful about their love of bunnies. By London designer Jo Robinson (who grew up on a farm), the Bouncing Bunny Tea Towel  is  £9. It's available from her company,  HAM, which "seeks to add a serious edge to its playful subject matter." The tea towel and other  HAM designs featuring spunky rabbits are also offered as prints, mugs, and notecards; go to  HAM for details. Above: Ed Annink's  Droog Hare Mat , made of coir, is quickly becoming a design icon. It's available at Allmodern for $189.75. Above: Artist Noëlle Burke of Philadelphia-based Etsy shop Xenotees specializes in witty screen-printed pillowcases for animal lovers. Noëlle's Best Bunnies Pillowcases  are made from 100 percent Pima cotton; $32 for a set of two. Have a look at her cat and dog pillowcases in our gift guides.
