Pattern obsession

I've been head long in coursework contracts (eugh) all week with very little spare time to get some creative juices flowing again.  But thankfully a little online retail therapy this lunchtime caused me to fall upon something really worthy of a mention.  Funnily enough, it features a print.  I apologise now, but just can't get enough of them at the moment.

Check out this refreshing and innovative fusion of animal skin and paisleyesque persian pattern from Young & Battaglia.

With cow hide such interiors hot property at the mo, it's wonderful to see a clever and playful reinvention of it.  The colours and print on this rug are subtle enough to fit into any style of interior. What do you think then - crass or class?

This British design duo create lots of other lovely interiors gems, check them out here.

Happy weekend folks, what are you getting up to?  With a bit of chill out 'me' time, I hope to be able to get into a more regular posting routine next week x

Wow! Brave of you. I think it's rather intriguingly fascinating!
Question: have you actually seen it somewhere live before you purchased it online? Did you obtain a sample?

I hope you will take a picture of when it's in situ. I'll be really interested to see it in your space.

I like the duo's work. Always playful and quirky but had never seen this printed cowhide before so thanks for the introduction.

Have a good weekend. Mine is going to be a mixture of fun and work.... and then there is Strictly!! x

Okay, I think it's gorgeous. I tried to talk my fam into a cow hide rug for our living room, but got much resistance. Boo. I think the paisley is stunning. Pattern is tricky for me, but you're turning me around!

That is so striking and unique. What an original combination. Did you actually go for it and buy, Sam? I love paisley at the moment too. I am having a moral crisis about cow products at the moment, funnily enough, though. I've always been vegetarian, you see. Now that I'm buying my own place, I would love a beaten up antique leather chair. But I can't reconcile it with my vegetarianism... even though, as my Mum pointed out, I wear leather shoes!

Oh cool! I didn't even notice the subtle pattern on the rug until I looked closely. It's really pretty, it's almost like a regular Oriental rug mixed with a stylish cowhide. I've long adored the cowhide rugs at IKEA but then I realized that they are actual cowhides, like, from cows, and not synthetic and I got freaked out in some weird meat-eater-guilt trip. Anyway! I do like it a lot. Class all the way.

That rug is so unique and interesting. I love that they incorporated a pattern onto the hide. I've seen hides used in some really beautiful spaces, and they always look great. However, I'm like Erin and wouldn't be able to actually put one in my own house. (Though, I do have a sheepskin rug in my son's room, which is not much different.)

Great rug! I love the trend for traditional rug patterns done in contemporary ways. Thanks for the introduction too, off to google! X

I'm giggling at us telling poor Arthur that your cowhide rug was fake! ;)
