Serpentine chic still sizzles as both the fashion and home décor industries make the most of Chinese astrology’s Year of the Snake. The versatile animal print is gracing everything from bangles to bergeres! Why is this pattern gaining popularity? It is primitive and natural and luxurious- all at the same time. Snakeskin’s geometric regularity brings order to any design scheme. In a neutral room, the material offers lively texture. Similar to our favorite leopard print, the motif seduces in any color or scale, from realistic to abstract. And to a traditional scene, the serpent introduces a wild, edgy element that draws the eye and heightens the senses!
As versatile as leather, snakeskin can slither around anything. Edelman Leather will custom wrap an iconic Parsons table with a skin in any color…
Always avant garde, designer Kelly Wearstler magnifies the snake’s beauty by blowing up the scale (and glam factor!) of this design for The Rug Company.
A timeless classic, the ‘X Bench’ becomes a focal point. Two’s Company made this traditional standby sexy in black and white, faux python.
Available at every price-point, there is no excuse not to indulge in the scintillating snake. Take a cue from a family favorite, Target, and their elegant Threshold lamp.
