While there are myriad types of accessories coming in all shapes and sizes, we’d like to focus on one small area of accessories: Animals!
From lions to dogs to elephants, animals make for wonderful conversation pieces, and not just because of what they are, but for the images they bring to our minds. A carved dog often makes visitors think of their own precious pooches… A sculpture of a lion makes us think of the king of the Wild as he lays under a tree in the Serengeti surveying his domain. A wooden elephant makes us think of an ancient Indian society where a Maharaja might travel by elephant. But of course that’s exactly what accessories do, they highlight, they accentuate, or sometimes they even become the stars of the room themselves, the things that visitors remember six months after they visited…
And so, as the holiday approaches and you’re wondering what to get that person who has everything or you’re thinking of that client whose master bedroom is missing that last perfect accessory, we’d like to showcase a menagerie of choices that might be just what you’re looking for.
