Must Love Dogs

Who loves me loves my dog also. — St. Bernard de Clairvaux

Animals have always played a central role in hearth, home and harvest – so it’s only natural that the dog is the figurative mascot. The inclusion of animals within a room interior evokes a sense of stature and reassurance. From decorative bronze figurines to leather ottomans, they integrate history and whimsy through a natural patina or bygone technique.
