Needing, Wanting, Loving: Shagreen

Happy Monday!  Did you have a fab weekend?  I hope so!  As per usual, I spent mine hunting antique stores and furniture shops.  Shagreen-covered accessories and tables seem to be everywhere these days, and I can't get enough of them.  They have become my new favorite way to spice up an interior.  Did you know the material is the pebbly hide of a stingray or dogfish?  Today, we typically see faux-shagreen pieces. I love how the texture takes clean-lined and simple objects and imbues a sense of glamour in to them.



Due to its extreme durability, shagreen is often used on furniture.  I love this shagreen-covered desk:


There are an array of shagreen-covered trays out there.  I think a tray is a great way to add just a touch of the material to your decor.  I love this one and this one.  They add a little luxe to an everyday vignette:


Are you wanting (needing) shagreen as much as me?  If so, here are a few shagreen-covered pieces that I just love and I know you'll love, too:




1.) Shagreen Pillow Cover $90/2.) Zagliani Green Shagreen Faye Clutch $2,950/3.) Olivia Ivory Grey Shagreen End Table $1,099/4.) Shagreen Console with Nailhead Trim $2000/5.) Pink Shagreen iPhone Case $98/6.) Sergio Rossi Barbie Shagreen Ankle Booties $447.50/7.) Furbish Studio Shagreen Jewelry Box $150

That pink iPhone case is too much.  I adore it.  And I've had my eye on the Furbish jewelry box for months.  Which item is your favorite??
