Horn of Plenty

Personal Style

Leather, bone, antler, hide: In the West, we are never far removed from indigenous materials. The tradition of decorating with wall mounts and animal trophies dates back to European aristocrats and the grand tradition of the country home; now, Jackson Hole interior designers find creative ways to insert a trace of unexpected wildness into the textures of contemporary interior spaces. All it takes is a touch.

PRINCESS STAG WALL MOUNT

These wooden, hand-carved stag heads were collected by the Prince and Princess of Belgium and displayed in their Royal Lodge. “For us, it’s become part of our culture, it’s become our philosophy of design—we acquire these collectible antiques because they have a historical content that makes them much more interesting.”
– Rush Jenkins, WRJ Design

ANTHROPOLOGIE DRAWER PULLS, MILLED ANTLER

“It’s a refinement of taking these materials, whether it’s hide or antler, and polishing
it to a sense of elegance that you want to touch and feel and handle—to be tactile rather than just to be looked at.”
–Kathy Reedy, ek Reedy Interiors

HERON SIDEBOARD CONSOLE

The console is available inlaid with mother of pearl, horn, or bone. “Our wildlife is definitely part of our lifestyle. It’s nice to kind of remember that, and bring it somehow into our designs.”

ELK MOUNT, ASHLEY TUDOR

“What Ashley Tudor does artistically is in honor of the hunt. She has taken the skull and has created solid bronze casts that are highly polished. It takes her many, many hours to do that and create these incredible mounts that are a fresh, very unique artistic interpretation of the stag.”
– Rush Jenkins, WRJ Design

HAND-BLOWN GLASS CHANDELIER, NORTH RIM GLASS STUDIO LLC

“When you put a Western touch in a different setting, it sets it off in a new way. It doesn’t take very much. The hair on hide is great on a chair seat, for example. We also like these glass antlers because they provide a little bit of a twist on it.”
– Jodi Forsyth & Amy Brown, Forsyth & Brown
