Am I late to the party on the Shagreen trend? It doesn’t really matter; this classic material mixes well with any decade.
Whether real or faux, the durability of shagreen makes it a good choice for tables or chairs.
Some shagreen accessories are a bit steep in price, especially if they are vintage.
If used sparingly and mixed in with other items, shagreen adds interest and texture.
Shagreen is many things, but comfortable is NOT one of them. Instead of buying a shagreen pillow, use these soft linen pillows for a similar visual effect.
Shagreen textured wallpaper is available if you prefer to make a bigger statement.
I have seen several lamps with Shagreen bases that are nice, but this lamp with its shagreen shade scared them all away with its awesomeness.
Layer in a few contemporary shagreen textured pieces from Wedgewood onto your dinner table.
Accessorize with a shagreen textured box or set of vases to add both color and texture.
Shagreen has certainly made its way into the mainstream, including Martha Stewart’s line of desk accessories for Avery. Mix in some of the Poppin brand products in white or red for contrast.
Shagreen is a great material to use on one or two pieces in a room. Make sure that you choose something with classic lines and style that will stand the test of time as well as the material itself will.
