Animal Instinct!

We've been vegetarians almost 93% of our lives.  However, the pull of animal inspired/animal objects is just too difficult for us to resist.  Double standard;  probably.  Worth the label; absolutely!

This ram horn lamp by Barbara Cosgrove is not real animal but it's really amazing! 

The sheep skin stools by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard are one of a kind from his London container sale on One Kings Lane! 

Reupholstered horned footstool in a white leather with chrome nailhead accents!  This footstool is G3Q Designs.  For more reinvented furnishings visit our store.

Ugh, gorgeous birds hand carved from bone.  Vintage. Stunning.  
(Pair available at our Etsy Store.)

(Not Your Mother's) Cowhide!

Holy cow (I couldn't resist)! I am in awe of Kyle Bunting's line of products.  Rugs, upholstery, furniture, art, and wall coverings.  Among my favorites, the hide wall covering above, is made with cream colored hair-on-hide leather in a chevron pattern. This or any of the other custom wall coverings would surely make any space stylish and warm.

Oh my gosh, I adore everything about this room.  The crazy-amazing fabric on the chaise, Pearl River by Schumacher, the persimmon-colored Chinese Keyhole chairs, the tassels on the stools.  And, the use of the organic feeling cowhide rug under it all.  This room was designed by Molly Luetkemeyer of M.Design Interiors.  More to come from this talented woman!

These are a few rugs from Kyle Buntings line.  All of the rugs can be done in custom colors and patterns.

(note: only one chair is still available)

We adore these cowhide chairs & wanted to keep them for ourselves!  We picture one sitting in an ultra modern space or even giving an otherwise feminine room a masculine touch.  We've accented these with an awesome ancient Chinese Temple Bell Also available at our store!

Hoofed-feet get us every time!

Shagreen, Shagreen, Shagreen!!!

We are enchanted by (almost) all pieces covered in these exotic skins!  The simple lines on this Karl Springer snakeskin covered coffee table make it super versatile. 

This incredible vintage Pirite Shagreen Commode from Old Plank Road doesn't come cheap but wow, is it a fantastic piece of furniture.  It's a soft bluish green colored hide from a stingray and would certainly add a touch of class to any space.

If, like us, you love all things animal, you must visit our store!  We have a great selection of animal inspired and shaped goodies!  Happy Monday!

Trust in the Lord with all of your heart;do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all that you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6
