SENTIENT: fur for your home

SENTIENT Caribou Lounge

A year ago, I was walking the streets of Cologne, Germany with excitement as one of thirteen designers on BlogTour Cologne. With new friends we studied the Bauhaus architectural landscape as we anticipated our first meal...aaah the Vienna schnitzel..  I remember my stomach growling but all the newness in a new city satiated my hunger. Upon our first stop was the cutest little restaurant with seats covered in fur. I loved the thought of curling up into one of those furry chairs but unfortunately the restaurant was closing up for the night. I snapped a quick pic in hopes of finding something comparable in the States some day. (see below)

Over the year, I've seen some great fur on the runways.... but not at any of the design  BDNY where I found SENTIENT, design furniture handcrafted in their Brooklyn studio. Love it! 

Fur set within reclaimed oak is pure old world luxury. A nice hard edge to its contrasting softer depths. I also love how the Antique oak showcases its knots, holes, and cracks. See some of their other delish designs..

The Long wool Sofa has crazy wild long hair Icelandic sheepskin wool with gorgeous array of warm beige, brown and golden colors. Designed by Chief design officer Nersi Nasseri.

The Carabou lounge combines luxurious soft Coyote fur with American Walnut.  To Die for..I'm SMITTEN!
