antlers...

i was puzzled by this headline in the styles section of the ny times:

"The chic new design element of the season? Why it’s the antler, naturally."

new? this season?

I saw this- what the?? As if the trend wasn't OVER enough. I'm so SO SO sick of the whole look.

I thought at first that they were talking about the trend in a larger way- how it just now reached the "masses" so to speak. Though the examples they give are rather "hip" companies who've been producing natural, antler for years. It seemed like the article date should have read "April 26, 2005" or even 2006, not 2007.

I hate to seem snooty but isn't this trend at least 3 years old? I live in Dallas and read the Times every day but I've been seeing antlers here (especially in restaurants) for the past two years.

Odd.

I know! I just saw that and wonder about the validity of anything style wise they have to say now...

I just chuckled. It's in keeping with Times style coverage, which is usually at least a year behind... Don't you remember their intense, wide-eyed coverage of the "Blog Phenomenon," a year or two ago? Sigh.

style and design is what you make it as well as design. Don't understand why people are so into trends and fads.

That's funny. I've been posting some pix from my SW road trip on my blog (http://blog.kosmonaut.net) and just uploaded some a few days aog of an antler sculpture farm I passed somewhere in Utah.

I'd expect that kind of remark from a small rural paper. But seriously, in a city that prides itself on being cutting-edge, for a reporter to be this late to the game...that's just lame. Guess I wasn't the only one confused by the piece.

I was amused but not surprised. The NYTimes Style section is always old trends as new styles, which I find odd and disappointing.

What they probably meant is that we will be seeing it in Targets and Walmart this upcoming season. . . . .
