On-Trend Texture: Shagreen


A texture we covet on furniture, trays, boxes and even books, the origin of shagreen reaches back centuries. In China and Japan, the textured rawhide served a more utilitarian purpose, commonly used to wrap weaponry in cases where a slippery surface would be detrimental, like the hilts and scabbards of swords and daggers.

The earliest shagreen was created by scattering seeds across moist, stretched hides and a fabric was then placed over the seeds. The hide was trampled upon or pressed, leaving tiny indentations. After drying in the sun, the seeds were shaken off leaving behind a granulated surface, then dyed. By the 17th and 18th centuries shagreen was made from the skins of rays and sharks and saw increasing popularity in England and France.

Having just returned from High Point Market, our style-spotting staff saw faux shagreen at every turn. Find a collection of these beautifully textured furnishings below, and if you’re designing with it in your own home, or sharing a design scheme on Instagram, be sure to tag your pics #showusyourshagreen!
