Townsend Leather has introduced a collection of brushed metallic lambskin. The select skins are aniline-dyed and hand-rubbed with a glazing finish that features a metallic glimmer “to accentuate the natural softness and unique textures of individual skins.”

According to the Johnstown, N.Y.-based purveyor of fine leather, while lambskins are relatively small, a skilled upholsterer can create beautiful small chairs, large tufted pieces and pillows.
