You can't go into a fashionable or sophisticated show room these days without a hint of horn some where in the room. Whether it is a lamp, decorative box, or the designer herself is wearing a horn inspired piece of jewelry, horn chic is a hot look these days.
Love it or hate it?
Horn inspired decor is here, at least for now and it seems to be a staple look revived and reinvented for today's adventurous homeowner.
A collection of horn inspired home goods, fur throws & pillows as well as leather bound trunks & faux inspired wall treatments. Spied here, from the pages of a home decor magazine ( unknown ).
Perhaps where the trend was inspired from? The old standby the horn rimmed glass frame. Now reinvented and beautifully crafted in different styles & variations in eyeware.
Not only for home decor, the horn inspired items have long been present in fashion. Don't you remember the horn rimmed frames from the past? They conjur up memories of 80's plaids, leather & preppy inspired chic! Of course, the vintage look of Hepburn or the classic Robert Redford also come to mind.This horn inspired purse is from indulgencefa.com
My last trip to Kansas City, I found & posted on a large horn ring, this cuff was an addition to the pair that I found online.
Talk about a set of horns? My little brother has Texas Lonhorn cattle and it is the length of the horns that is of most importance. Well, this is a big set of horns, by Horn Objet.
A Levine inspired fireplace with another set of this time, larger horns, notice how they mimic the curve in the fireplace opening?
Horn carved small beads for this rosary set, another favorite of mine; the religious artifacts.
CH & H kitchens even show a larger black forest set of antlers surrounded by smaller pieces.
A bedroom in Domino, a collection of faux horns arranged over this bed in a cozy nook.
This green room not only features a few horns, but a collection of antique engravings of animals.
A trio of antlers, environmentally friendly as they are "faux horns" and no animal was hurt in the making of these little beauties!
Last year, I lined a row of these cups along the table and used a simple bloom as a table setting.
A simple twisted horn magnifying glass makes an interesting table scape item.
Tableware is also a place for horn inspired settings, this serving set is SOLD, but was offered by Eddie Ross Etsy store.
This bar area from Thomas Smythe is flanked to the right with a set of African horns resting on the fireplace.
A well suited bar area, these silver tipped horn cups can hold a multitude of goodies for home or work.
More horn accessories from Thomas O' Brien's store; Aero, Ochre, and John Derian. These little bowls can be used from holding desk items to small appetizers when entertaining. These little bowls were spotted at Ochre in New York. I love the contrast and the simple beauty in each piece of horn, much like a fingerprint in each one is unique and simply designed.

Horn frame each individual and unique in design, shape or color. This one & the dish holding jewelry is from wrappables.
From Vivre a natural set of horns studded with rinestones & crystals and displayed on a stand.
A smaller pair but equally as beautiful is this set of bookends by Williams Sonoma Home.
I like the look, vintage horned items may be authentic, where many of the newer pieces are friendlier to the animal kingdom. I own a few horn display trophies, faux in form & shape but they bring something to the room, a piece of history, a peek into a faraway place & a little nostalgic touch of safari. It is definately a look to be appreciated on an individual level, look around there are horns of all types in todays decorative marketplace.
