That splash of exotic pattern that weaves into any decor exuding a cozy sense of luxury, an appreciation for glamour, and, invariably, a more genuine look overall because everything is not from the same region or genre…it is all about the mix, and not following any set of rules…except your own.
This fall, take a walk on the wild side! Animal prints are all the rage both in apparel and decor. Cheetah prints are the new neutral palate. Though it is the hot trend now, the truth of the matter is that it never goes out of style. From a subtle leopard print chair to a bold zebra print throw pillow, or rug…an animal print adds character to timeless pieces of furniture.
These Louis XVI chairs have a classic shape that pairs perfectly with the traditional leopard print they are upholstered in. Add them to a living room as pull up chairs, in a bedroom on either side of a table and they will become the statement piece that can change the entire space.
Another way to embrace the trend is with using a natural hide. The craze of late is using light colored cowhides. You see them as rugs, pillows and used as upholstery. Our Louis XVI Brazilian Cowhide Settee perfectly pairs the feminine feel of the gilded wood with the masculine cowhide. This piece is perfect for any office, sitting room or any space that you want to create a “Wow” factor within. The options for animal prints are endless!
For a subtle, easy approach to incorporating an animal print into your decor without adding a piece of furniture or a rug, opt for a beautiful pillow. This pillow or that pillow adds a pop against our Traditional Sofa, or they could do the same on a bed or chair.
Try to incorporate something from the animal print trend and see your home transform into a high-design setting.

Some rooms have a certain magic about them. They summon you, and make you want to sit and stay awhile. Add a comfortable chaise lounge to that room, and it immediately says to you…come, relax, and enjoy this space. Pour yourself a cup of hot tea, grab your favorite book, and start enjoying the sanctuary you have created.
Today we are featuring our gorgeous Chippendale Chaise Lounge with a beautiful gold brocade fabric. The elegant details in the gilded ball and claw feet mixed with the classic shape add to the splendor of this timeless piece. England meets France as we nestle our Louis XVI Marble Top Table alongside it. Behind, we continue our friendship with an ornately carved French mirror placed above our Sheraton Inlaid Demilune Console. Our Bronze Ram’s Head Lamp adds that industrial element of metal to our décor. Notice the Asian influence in the dragon accent pillow, which lends a pop of color. From color to scale to surface to texture…it just works. When a room combined with luxury and practicality speaks the same language, it will call your name.
