Elegant Equestrian-Inspired Accents to Elevate Your Home Decor

By Jessica Balasa | March 25, 2019 | Home & Real Estate National

Nothing beats a sunny day spent spectating at a polo match or the cheering crowds on derby day. It’s no secret that Americans have an affinity for all things equine. Here, equestrian-inspired finds to add a touch of the elegant pastime to your home.



Horse Head Bookends, Pottery Barn, $79, Pottery Barn

Sturdy sculpted bookends keep literature collections standing tall. Aluminum horse heads have a metallic bronze finish for an antique flair.

Moment of Suspension


Equestrian Leather Tack Chandelier, Aged Iron, Williams Sonoma, $1,450, Williams Sonoma

Aged iron adds authenticity to the rustic candle lit chandelier. Leather strapwork is an imitative nod to reins found in tack shops and stables.



Limited Edition Lithographs - Steeplechase, Paul Brown, $500, Brooks Brothers

A limited edition copper engraved lithograph is a find rarer than a Triple Crown winner. The Steeplechase print is finished with a lustrous frame in a shade of mahogany rich enough to rival any equine coat.



Equilibre d’Hermes magazine rack, Hermes, $21,800, Hermes

A unique saddle silhouette makes the maplewood and Taurillon H leather magazine rack a superb way to stash glossy pages. The stylish storage piece doubles as a work of abstract minimalist art and is quite the conversation starter.

Square Halt


Rider Two Tier Side Table, Jonathan Adler, $995, Neiman Marcus

Two tiers of tempered glass shelves give the French-inspired table a luxe appeal. Thin matte black legs as long as a race horse’s topped with beautiful brass horse head accents complete the aesthetic.

Tack Room


Brennan Leather Umbrella Stand, Ralph Lauren, $595, Saks

This hand-stitched leather stand evokes the image of an English competition bridle. The simple, yet classic design, is perfect for holding umbrellas.

Morning Ride


Au Sultan Candle, Longchamp Paris, $95, Longchamp

Fragrant dew drops in a flowery field mingle with the scent of a freshly shined leather saddle to recreate the memory of galloping through the fields on a fox hunt at daybreak. The chic cowhide candle adds a touch of elegance to any space.
