Horsing Around: 05.29.13

May 28th, 2013  |  Published in Feature Stories

You’re cordially invited to join us for an imaginary afternoon of horseshoes, inspired entirely by this gorgeous new set from Rocky Mountain Hardware. Hand-cast in bronze (regulation weight, of course) and available in a myriad of finishes, the set of two shoes and two stainless steel stakes retails for a cool $967. Impractical, yes. But that’s hardly the point of these highfaluting shoes (nor of our pretend party).

While you’re not busy pitching shoes, you’ll be relaxing in one of the Rapson Cave Chairs in Chocolate. Originally drawn for plywood by the mid-century architect Ralph Rapson, the design was scooped up by Loll Designs who recreated the piece in their signature recycled plastic. Don’t worry, it’s much cozier than it sounds.

Fancy a refreshing beverage? We recently stumbled upon Southern Living’s recipe for a Frozen Peach Old Fashioned and it just felt like the obvious choice for this imaginary fête of ours, especially since we’ll be imaginary serving them up in a set of Vintage Briard Blue and Green Double Old Fashioneds that we discovered on The Hour.

 

Of course, if you are planning to join us you best dress the part. We recommend the Judy Parks Straw Cloche  for her and Leland Straw Bowler for him (both from Goorin Brothers’ Heritage Collection). See you there!
