Acquisitions: Vintage Zebra Skin Rug


After years of lusting for a zebra, I finally made my big move and won the auction for this guy last night.  My poor little target version will be forsaken, Harry Potter-cupboard-under-the-stairs-style, to live out his days rolled up under my bed with the cow hide and the ivory blue and orange Indian rug with the giraffe motif.  At least he'll have company.

  2. Congratulations! Mrs. E. made me sell some stock once to buy "Lulu." I can't imagine life without her now.

    WOW - it's pretty amazing.

  4. Hollister ... I once saw a fantastic ottoman in Spain ... about two feet tall with a hinged cover ... and the top of the ottoman was a zebra hide, which also dictated the shape of the ottoman ... it was wonderful ...

    I saw one at a garage sale (with felt) for $500. May I ask what you paid for yours?

    cheers from Ruth, who actually ate zebra when living in Africa many years ago
