“No thoughts just pig ottoman” is Twitter user @2Saddington’s quarantine mood — and it’s a relatable one at that. This cute little footstool from Target went viral on March 3 with over 100,000 retweets.

The Burton New Velvet Pig Ottoman could be yours for less than $60 — though certain colorways in some areas are, unsurprisingly, sold out after the footstool’s five minutes of fame.

The ottoman, from Christopher Knight’s home collection, isn’t even the first piece of pig furniture to rise to fame during lockdown. See also: this ad for a sofa (actually, its designer says it’s a chair) on Craigslist that turned out to be fake but made the internet (and Apartment Therapy’s editor Slack channel) collectively freak out.

IMO, if you’re the current owner of the one-of-a-kind pig sofa chair, you need the Target footstool to match. And if you’re not the owner of the chair — or a fan of pigs in general — fear not, there are other adorable animal footstools available.

Lions and unicorns and woolly mammoths, oh my! Also, bunnies, dinosaurs, elephants, pandas, and more.

Plus, the yak and the sheep have total Friluftsliv vibes.

And while you could put these ottomans in any room, they do look pretty adorable in nurseries. Whether your ottoman is a grown-up purchase or a surprise for your kiddo, it’ll add a bit of whimsy and fun to your space.
