Get The Layered Look

Brindle Cowskin Rug
 available in oat, deep black, stone(shown)

Designed in Argentina, these rugs are produced from selected hides that are carefully categorized according to color and thickness, then shaved to the exact same length. None of the hair is dyed or removed, and the hides are tanned with environmentally-friendly products. This careful design creates a final product with a funky, modern look in terms of shape and pattern, but the materials are about as natural as you can get. For ease of care, the rugs simply require an occasional vacuum and are stain resistant—simple soap and water will take care of any spills.  I see this an individual rug in your space or a handful of them layered to create a well traveled look.

Make A Splash

Waikiki Wooden Surfboard
76.75" x 19.75" x 7"

Only a few craftsmen now have the skills needed to build a classic wooden surfboard. Long enough to ride the waves off Waikiki or Malibu. Just short enough to casually lean into a corner of your living room, study, or den… Boards are made of laminated strips of selected light woods. Three fins are included for improved stability.

Seating Fit For A God

Klismos Style Side Chair
24.5" x 23.5" x 34"

This newly constructed chair has a classical shape.  It has a woven caramel colored leather back with a leather seat on a “rusty” wrought iron frame – as chic today as it was in Ancient Greece.  The elegant curves of the chair makes it both masculine and feminine able to be used in most any interior situation.

Pair of cerused oak nightstands
by Oakmasters Originals
circa 1960
15" x 20" x 30.25"

This pair of vintage nightstands is to die for!  I love the smaller scale, the vertical nature and the original bronze handles.  I forgot to mention my favorite part, the beautiful cerusing that make each piece that much more special.  I see these used in almost any situation, from the more obvious beach house retreat bedroom to the less- paired with a long, thick cut piece of glass as a console/desk combination.
Either way these nightstands are a must-have!
