Sheepskin remains after tens of thousands of years of use, able to surprise us still with novel applications to everyday life and the creative arts.
A few of the most surprising instances brought to our notice over recent months are shown in the RSA's very own virtual gallery. Apres-ski cafe bench throws. Ice hotels. Furnishings in alpine chalets. Atelier Van Lieshout's Mayfair Furniture Exhibition; avant garde sculptural chairs, sofas and skulls 'upholstered' with sheepskin... and more.
