Through his work, designer Kyle Bunting is redefining how hide is used in interior applications. Having recognized the design potential of the material and working exclusively in hide for almost a decade, Bunting has created a unique range of luxury hide rugs, wallcoverings, upholstery, furniture and even art.

Made with hair-on-hide leather, the luxurious texture and rich colours make the work of Bunting particularly appealing as they add a great deal of visual and tactile interest to any environment where they are used.

Working with a variety of designers in his design studio outside Austin in the Texas Hill Country, Bunting has completed projects for thousands of private clients and design professionals all over the world. His work has garnered international attention and acclaim.

Odds are that you’ll either love or hate Bunting’s furry furniture and colourful carpets. They certainly are attention grabbing, but is it for the right reasons? We’d love to know your thoughts.
