Shagreen for Shark Week

Shark Week has my family glued to the TV.  If you are not watching you are missing out.  Watch the one about a 38′ Great White in South Africa called Submarine, The Shark of Darkness: The Wrath of Submarine. You may never touch your toe in the water again.

I do love a shark…on my furniture and accessories. Shagreen typically refers to the skin of rays, sharks or dogfish, all of which are cartilaginous fish with a smoothly pebbled texture. It has been used for centuries as a mild abrasive, like sandpaper, in smoothing wood and metal.”

 Here are some divine shagreen pieces I would welcome into my interiors.
