A Rabbit in a Chef’s Hat

Bunnys Waffle Shops throw pillow from Unkie Monkie Studios

We’ve always gotten a kick out of this logo since Unkie Monkie Studios found it on a matchbook cover years ago.  There isn’t much available on the history of the Bunnys Waffle Shops chain beyond the fact that there were at least 3 locations in San Francisco, California: 1102 Market Street, 964 Market Street, and 11 McAllister Street.  An internet image search reveals several pieces of dishware originally manufactured by Tepco China for the restaurant.  An Unkie Monkie Studios fan contacted us who’s parents frequented Bunnys during the early 1940s, and who visited Bunnys regularly as an adult in the 1960s.  We who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s and 1980s never ran across any of the Bunnys locations, unfortunately.

Unkie Monkie Studios offers this great illustration on apparel and home accessories at their Zazzle and Cafepress stores.  Find it on gift wrap, and fabric at Unkie Monkie Studios Spoonflower store, and on napkins, placemats, dish towels, throw pillows, and even furniture at their Roostery Home Decor store!

Monarch – a fan favorite

Monarch Beach Towel

Of all the surface designs created for the Morton Design House collection, Monarch is the pattern people continually return to.  Upon receiving an art print of the pattern, one fan remarked, “There’s something mesmerizing about the way the colors and patterns are juxtaposed that keeps me coming back to it.  I see it even when I’m not looking at it!”  The design does look dazzling on textiles.  Browse Morton Design House’s Monarch print on demand collection here.
