Fashion Meets Function Friday!

It's another installment of Fashion meets Function and I am very excited about this one.  As you know from my recent post, I visited Crystal Bridges Museum a few months ago and in their gift shop found this amazing little fellow!

This extremely unique clutch is not only the perfect size and shape, it is also made from a most unusual material, Redwood. However, it does not stop there - the beautiful grain of this wood is accented with gold or silver inlay.  The metallic accents dress this clutch up enough to wear it with a cute little frock...perhaps my bronze sequin shift dress and my new snakeskin Brian Atwood wedges with gold chain detail... ;)

Alas, these beauties were all sold out by the time I called to request more information.  So, it's a mystery….unless any of you readers know?

The fabulous grain, color, and detail of this clutch remind me of so many things that I love about interior design and it especially reminds me of this fabulous wood grain wallpaper and fabric by Maya Romanoff:

I love using different and unusual patterns and materials in unexpected ways.  The patterned wallpaper and wooden clutch is a perfect example of just that.  

Happy Friday!
