Translating Trends: Man's Best Friend
Whether you’re describing your canine or your culinary, this Best in Show dish towel from Anthropologie will add whimsy to any kitchen. The design was hand-screened and stitched on an antique sewing machine by UK designer Poppy Treffry in the tiny, charming United Kingdom village of Cornwall. YLiving. Created by designer Gabrial Nigro after a trip to a friend’s flat where cables had run amok, this fun and functional piece is truly man’s best friend. Are you a Boston Terrier aficionado? Or maybe basset hounds are more your pace. With a wide range of breeds to choose from, each pooch print from Ballard Designs is designed by Vivienne and Sponge, a dog-loving husband-and-wife team, and is hand-colored on antiqued parchment, embellished with notes on the breed’s special characteristics. Serve canapés to your canine friends on this charming plate created exclusively for Anthropologie from French designer Nathalie Lete. Depicting un chien, it instantly adds Parisian whimsy to your tabletop.
Dogs bark in all languages of style. Whether your taste is modern or traditional, you can still cover your walls in doggie details. Designer Wallcoverings has a dog toile pattern for the traditionals and a flock velvet wallpaper depicting silhouettes of our favorite breeds for those that prefer a more modern design.
