{My Houzz Articles} Multi-Functional Furniture

I like to choose pieces of furniture for my home that can work in a variety of ways. For example – a stool can be used for seating or as a small stand for a plant. In my lastest artice on Houzz i look at 5 furniture pieces that i call magical multi-taskers! They are furniture pieces that i love to have around my home, because they get used so often and in so many ways. Click the image below to get the full story –

Leather Love

I really love leather. I don’t care if it’s old or new. There’s something about the smell of new leather that i love, but i also love when leather is old and worn.  We lashed out on new lounges for the house. They are very different styles. The chesterfield lives in the parlour opposite the fireplace and the other is more modern and belongs in the kitchen/living area. I love them equally. :)

The following pictures are of my cowhide, which i love. I know that animal skins aren’t for everyone (my daughter hates it) but i appreciate all of the animal being used, including the skin,  if it has been bred for eating purposes. The black and white contrasts beautifully with the tan lounge. Also, it is durable and easy to clean. Gotta love that!

Alright, so that’s my new leather. Now onto the old. These were all found at the Molong junk shop. Boy do i love that place. I don’t think we’ve ever visited and not taken something home. It is full of treasures!

This beauty was found at the junk shop. The top of the stool is covered in embossed leather. It’s lovely and solid, as most old furniture is.

This black beauty is covered in leather! I adore it. It will probably end up on one of the bedside tables at Winterfell.

I know this won’t appeal to everyone, but my husband loves camels, so when we saw this leather covered one, we had to have it!!

What a funny pair!
