Very cool.  Has a kind of cosmopolitan but also vintage look, like a combination of old school European with African safari and some . . . what's the word?  Chinoiserie or something like that, the quasi-Oriental style that was way popular in like the early 1800's . . . in any case, way cool.

thanks for all the wonderful compliments. My son collected a lot of these items through the years. 
We also painted the furniture to fit in with the theme.  Most of the furniture is a mish mash of serveral pieces with the common theme being black paint.  the shelves and computer desk were purchased as black from Walmart.  A friend of mine gave me the dresser.  I sanded and painted it and my husband drilled holes for the handles as the piece actually has finger hole type drawer pulls.  I found the top without the mirror and handles unpainted at the Goodwill  (also my source for much of the animal printed linens.)   Sadly,right now all I can see of the original glory (as in cleanliness) are these pictures.  I know there was a floor.
