Today is Chinese New Year, and 2014 has been designated the Year of the Horse. Those born in these years are said to be "cheerful, skillful with money, perceptive, witty, talented and good with their hands." It promises to be a good year for them and for us as well.
Horses are beautiful, majestic creatures that are loved by many, either for riding, showing, racing, or just admiring the gait and wind in the mane when they are running free.
To celebrate the Year of the Horse, or just because you love horses, why not bring the horse motif into your home either through an accessory or other equestrian-inspired item such as this beautiful hand-carved horse head in marble?
While we are thinking of the home office, you must have equestrian-themed lighting for your desk. The Celerie Kemble for Maitland-Smith collection features this small, stitched leather-inlaid table lamp with brass in a stirrup motif. The shade is hand-sewn silk.
Another unique lamp is inlaid with hand-tooled leather and features riding gear. The custom finial is a small riding helmet.
These are just a few of the many horse-inspired items found at Maitland-Smith. Visit our website to see more. www.maitland-smith.com
Happy New Year to those who celebrate, and let's hope it is a good year for us all.
Elegant and distinctive pieces for your home today, with quality and style to last a lifetime..... Do you have a Maitland-Smith treasure?
