Distant Origin

I stumbled upon Distant Origin online a few months ago and was determined to make it there in person on my trip to New York.

NYC- July08 (95)

Located on Mercer Street in SoHo (right by Marc Jacobs), the gorgeous selection of furnishings and accessories was pretty arresting.

Not for vegans, a majority of the pieces involve some blatant use of animal skins, horns or fur -- such as the elaborate antler captain’s chair below.

Snakeskin x-benches and Moroccan poufs are scattered on the floor of the elegant space, where beautiful displays are set up for customer perusal.

Shelves of furry pillows begged for a tactile inspection and the plethora of horn nesting tables topped with unusual lamps were simply stunning.

Tons of decorative boxes were stacked on shelves, along with the humorous photo chairs I posted about not too long ago.

Visit the website to see a wide selection of their offerings or go in person to drool over the exotic offerings if you’re in Soho.

Wow their stuff might be a bit too modern for me, but I'm intrigued by the animal/unique furniture. That mirror is pretty fierce too.
