Oh, I was wrong because in waltzes Kyle Bunting with his modern rawhide and my world has turned upside down (how could I guess that he and his design colleagues are based outside of Austin?). The pewters, creams, roses and patterns in the 11.09 idea book pushed me into the holiday spirit a tad more. The cross-mirrored greek key design on the rose rawhide below is unbelievable, as well as Bunting's take on a modern moorish pattern. Even the simplicity of the tiled rawhide is absolutely praiseworthy in my book and probably my favorite.
This fauteuil chair in rose hide. . .definite inspiration for my director's chairs. My poor vegan friends will have nowhere to sit other than a throw pillow when they come to visit! Maybe I should research faux hide for the animal conscious designers?
