Hair on Hide

An obvious trend at this Fall's High Point Furniture Market was the unusual use of Hair on Hides. We saw it from our very traditional lines to the more modern ones. Designs from Western to European.
Many chairs and sofas were shown with animal hides mixed with different leathers, vinyls, and fabrics.

Almost every showroom we went into was showing hide rugs. They were displayed layered on top of sisal and Oriental rugs. They make a great accent piece in a room under a cocktail table where they can be seen and appreciated.

I absolutely love this pony chest with the decorative nailhead. (See post "Hit the Nail on the Head" on nailhead from last week)

Don't you love how Modern these chairs feel with the black and white??? I think they look clean and fresh.

Worried about too much hide? We saw lots of hide accent pillows for a pop that is easy to change. Don't you just love these faux zebra ones I saw at Hickory White??? They look divine on the apricot linen sofa with stainless nailhead.

unmarked images were taken by me.
