DIY Inspiration: Argentine Cowhide + Chrome

March 30, 2010

The cowhide rug I ordered from an Argentine vendor at the New York Gift Show has finally arrived. My plans are to recover my newly thrifted chrome chair-- courtesy of Housing Works-- a la R&B's Pierre chair. Of course pictures will come soon!

In the event that I can't find an upholster who can work with thick, hairy leather, I'm thinking I need a more traditional backup plan....

I pulled these images while home with a nasty cold...and wasn't very good about keep track of the sites. I'm so sorry! But the sites I remember are: Living, Etc., Visual Vamp and Matters of Style. Please check out those incredible blogs for the original photos.


  1. Can't wait to see the finished product!!

  2. Me too! Ha.

    So far I haven't had the heart to cut up my cowhide rug. And the chairs look so nice in my office. I'm a woman in denial. Hopefully this is my year to follow through!
