So Chic Shagreen… May 20


Shagreen is derived from untanned skin of animals, commonly sharks and sting rays, that are covered in close-set tubercles (and commonly died green).  Today, you can find plenty of beautifully made furniture and accessories from both real, and very often faux, shagreen.  One great thing about shagreen is its versatility.  It can look very masculine when made dark, or appears very feminine in lighter shades.  If you are interested in locating some shagreen products, let us know…we will be happy to find the right ones for your home.
