Get on the Horn!

The photo above of the Bunny Williams room featuring horns as fireplace accessories only further peaked my interest in these exotic pieces of decor.  There’s just something about their curvy, dramatic shape and sleek form that I’m really drawn to.

Horns flanking a mirror on a fireplace is my favorite application but they also look great in many other forms- chairs, tables, mirrors, and even serving trays!

I went to accessorize a client’s house the other day and was dead set on bringing her a horn accessory for her coffee table, and what do you know, she beat me to  it, and already had a horn of her own!

I do admit I like them – anything that comes from nature and provides contrast is great. Just found a boatload of them at a Salvage store here in Chattanooga – posted the find on my blog! http://www.chattafabulous.com

Never focused on the horn accessory before but you are right– they look great and they are a real trend. Great post! Lynn

Usually not a fan of horn, but the mirror looks great

The horns always facinated me, most people have prolems with them but every chance I have to introduce a horn in my design work, my favorite is the Landis chair. very manly and somehow comforting.
