Foo Dog Fervor


You know if Foo Dogs are showing up on the isles of Target that the world has developed a "fervor for foo"! 

These little 'ugly guys' have long been a design accessory of our most beloved designers.  From Mary McDonald to Jonathan Adler, foo dogs add a touch of Asian charm to a modern design and I think they're super fun.  






 






 

 Barbara Cosgrove Foo Lamps provide the perfect balance to a whimsical office space.

Once you keep your eyes open for the foo, you'll notice them popping up everywhere.   And who knew these puppies could have such a varying price tag.  I've seen them on One King's Lane for over $1,000 but found a few more affordable solutions below.   


Antique Lion Statues as Bookends at Horchow.com $675
(bare with me, the affordable are coming up)


Z Gallerie $39.95

Etsy.com $100



Add a twist to the foo dog concept and you have Jonathan Adler's "Barbie" Foo






Barbara Cosgrove
Dog Sitting $563




Thanks for stopping by!

I love anything animal.

I've been into pheasants. I want brass or silver ones.
