The first antler furniture

Trophies of the chase have been used to decorate log cabins and hunting lodges for many a long years. Antlers and stuffed heads mounted on walls where the first hunting objects used to fashion homes. A hunting lodge replete with antlers and stuffed animals may probably have been the place where the first ideas for antler furnishings came up. Antler furniture are furniture which are either manufactured completely from e. g. stag antlers, or furniture which are decorated with antler pieces from the stag, deer, fallow deer... or veneered with sliced antler pieces to get a hunting design.
