Skins on chairs

Desire to Inspire.

Dumplings, are we over this trend or does it still have, um, legs?

If I were queen of the universe, I'd outlaw these skins right after I eliminated the word “bespoke,” sofas in bathrooms, tvs framed or hidden in armoires, theme room style decorating, and plates hung on walls.

I like the occasional skin, but here with all the concrete and steel I think they just make the room look like a tannery.

I was hoping they just put them there to dry?

is it ok if i admit that i never really understood it? Erin has a skin on one of her chairs that I like, but I've never seen any others that do it for me. The ones in your picture are gross.

Ew, ew, ew.

That is all.

And now, I didn't mean "ewe".

Jenna said...

Hmmm, well isn't that something!

No likey. I have a sheepskin resting like a cozy inside a large chair and it's very comfortable, but I don't like the hanging creepiness of those skins.

David's comment -- once again -- rules.

This is too much. Maybe if they weren't the only textiles in the room and there wasn't quite so much drapey overkill. This is just creeping me out.

These look like my towels after we used them to mop up the floors in my water-logged basement last night. But I sure as hellz wouldn't have draped them
over those hot chairs.

All in all, not against the trend. But this is awful!

I personally like it in styling but can't imagine it being practical. My sheepskin rug (the chiwa's second home) stinks. When I pick her up after she's been laying on it all afternoon she smells like sulfuric poop. I would never want my dinner guests stinking and loose hairs in my soup.
