Hi everyone! I’m just back from High Point Market and must say, it was an amazing experience. I saw SO much and I have SO many photos to share with you of new products and trends I spotted.
Hair on hides is definitely a trend for Spring 2014. I saw hides used on the floor alone, hides layered over larger natural fiber rugs and hides used as upholstery on furniture and pillows.
One of my favorite finds for hides was the Saddleman showroom. I just loved the way they displayed these colorful stamped Zebra patterns on cowhides.
Now, I know people have very mixed feelings about hides. Personally, I was always adverse to them as I have spent most of my adult life as a vegetarian and I am a HUGE animal lover. However, having said that, I am somehow attracted to these. Maybe it is because like chicken nuggets, they no longer resemble the animal they once were.
What do you think about cowhides? Would you put one in your home?
Have a great weekend everyone. I will be sorting through hundreds of images and slowly coming down from my High Point “high”.
