For generations, horses have won the hearts of animal lovers with their beauty, spirit and zest for life. Now these noble creatures have captured the imagination of designers in an unexpected way. The look is elegant, upscale and tightly edited. Silhouettes are crisp, clean and a tad modern by way of their simplicity. This Fall, equestrian style is riding high. It’s easy to see why…
The sweeping technique used by artist Lauren Herrera to sketch the Planked Horse triptych creates the illusion of movement in a modern way. Although screen-printed onto three pieces of fir board, this wall art resembles a chic chalkboard drawing. $299.
To try the trend without going all in, hang your hat on the Equestrian double hook that’s crafted of burnished leather and iron. $32.
With its gleaming mirrored glass base and French snaffle bit-inspired polished nickel rim, the French Link tray is a posh perch for beverages, perfume bottles or anything else you want to corral. $99.
The curving geometric shape of a stirrup serve as inspiration for the sculptural design of the Equestrian table lamp. $139.
It’s clear to see that the horse has come out of the barn with a creative kick that works equally well everywhere from urban spaces to country retreats. This Fall, when it comes to stylishly horsin’ around, there’s no way to say nay.
