Foo Frenzy

This Foo is available from Jayson. Get the right and the left for chic bookends.

Foo Dog statues are an ancient Chinese tradition, typically found guarding temples. Fast forward to 2008 and they've become a must have in stylish homes everywhere. It's hard to open a magazine or catalog without seeing them in some form. I have a pair of Foo Dogs in a brilliant shade of turquoise and I adore them. I purchased them from Plantation Home here in LA. They work in a myriad of looks. I especially love them in a blue and white scheme, for a pop of color.

Ivanka's infamous apartment, she has multiple Foos in her place. I also noticed them on her window sill when she was on Oprah. (image from Style Court)

So nice! I remember my grandmother had some like those long time ago. I have no idea were they went though. Unfortunatley my grandfather loved throwing things..

I bought a cute pair of foo dogs at a Chinese restaurant supply store a few years ago. I think I am ready for an upgrade.
