Apparently this look has been around for a while and I’m just now becoming aware of it, but it seems like everywhere I look in magazines or blogs or design inspiration sites there is a thick, furry animal skin draped over furniture…especially modern furniture. I’m sure it would look a lot more appealing in the winter, and I’ve been contemplating this use of hides for the past week or so.
At first, I wasn’t feeling it. Again, it could be the fact that we’re in a historic heat wave here in the Midwest. But the more I mentally dwell on it, the more it’s growing on me! Maybe. I’m back and forth. The fact that my favorite designer/architect (Frank Lloyd Wright) used this in his iconic masterpiece “Falling Water” — which is celebrating it’s 75 Anniversary this week — has me leaning toward the “Yeah, I’m diggin’ it!” side.
