These Rams Head coffee table have me in a spin! more and more are popping up in glamorous interiors, on blogs and in magazines all over the place. I remember the first one I spotted, it featured in an article on Jessica Marx’s fabulous home, Rue magazine- issue 5. Jessica had found the stylish rams heads at a flea market, and they worked perfectly in her living room paired with her parents vintage Chesterfield and that stunning Chartreuse coloured high gloss console… (Which reminds me I must find time this weekend to read the latest issue of Rue!)

This photo popped up over at Mix and Chic last week…
I swear I have seen many more recently, but silly me forgot to bookmark them…. Now the thing that has got my head in a spin, is not only the fact that I am actually liking something skull-like, nor it is the beautiful simplicity or the myriad of interiors this coffee table can work in, but I have been searching high and low to try to find out who and when this coffee table was designed! And can you believe it, I can not find a thing! This style of coffee table has been dated back to the 1970s, though I did find one or two suggestions that they may have been around in the 1960s? Other than that all I was able to find were vintage/ antique and new replica rams head coffee tables for sale… If anyone happens to know a little more about these coffee tables, I would love to hear it!
In the mean-time, I will just enjoy drooling over the beautiful interiors I have found them in… Enjoy!

One thing I did discover while searching for answers and more photos, was that some of these are in fact in the shape of an Ibex head, and commonly mistaken for a rams head, so how about that!
How do you feel about this look? Are you also secretly jealous of all these people with fabulous tales of finding them at flea markets, or would you rather they stay hidden?
