ShaGREEN with Envy!

One of the major trends at Maison D’object in Paris this year was shagreen — this fabulous finish was simply everywhere. Shagreen is the pebbly hide of a stingray or dogfish. First used by the Turks to cover sword handles, the exotic material has been used for hundreds of years by cabinetmakers, whose veneered desks, armchairs, and even a grand piano proved that beauty was, marvelously, skin deep. At Jolie Kolaj, we love exotic finishes because they add an interesting depth to any interior. We just ordered this gorgeous cocktail table below for a client and it’s going to be stunning…


I found these beautiful shagreen trays and they would look great on a console or ottoman…


You can even wear this trend with the bracelets


Or carry it by your side with this cute little clutch with a yummy pop of color…


It’s a trend that makes us ShaGREEN with Envy!
