Hudson-based designer Stephanie Reppas creates inspired décor using unique sustainable materials found around New York. Her equestrian-themed wall mirrors are framed in hand-tacked leather and detailed with genuine polished steel snaffle bits. Each piece of vintage tack Stephanie uses is uniquely found and is well-aged and well-used. She cleans, conditions and touches up the leather as much as possible, though it can contain some natural wear and tear, an occasional scratch or even a faint 'horsey' smell, adding to the overall character of each mirror.
Mirrors are available in an array of colors and sizes up to 40”. Custom designs are also available, for the equestrian who wants a unique, bespoke piece created to honor a special horse companion.
