Houndstooth Furnishings

I move into a new apartment this weekend so I've been busy investigating furniture and interior design ideas. It seems every store has at least one token houndstooth item. Design Hole (somehow that sounds dirty) is a handy interior design blog that happens to feature a houndstooth resource page with hints on where to find houndstooth furniture.

What I can't get over is the diversity of houndstooth items out there. Take this unfortunate houndstooth zebra rug by Jonathan Adler. More cruel than the real deal.

And this hideous lamp from Bed Bath & Beyond whose colors safely match your apartment's used wound dressings. Shudder!

Some people have commented that my distate for houndstooth hides a deep fetish for the pattern and that I will eventually fill my apartment with houndstooth related items. If so it is this sick world that drove me to it.
