I'm starting to really love anything shagreen {the textury hide of a shark or sting ray}. Originally, the skin of a shark or sting-ray was used to give furniture a shagreen appearance, but today, more and more furniture makers are using embossed leather and vinyl fabricated to look like sting-ray skin. New shagreen home furnishings keep popping up everywhere I look. Mecox Gardens and Julian Chichester have an abundance of it. Check out these fabulous finds...

For high-end and authentic shagreen, search "shagreen" as the keyword in 1stdibs here.
