The elements of an Archer’s decor will come from far and wide, so no two interiors could ever be the same. But you will notice certain themes: Carefully considered collections (Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, and J. Paul Getty were famous Archer art aficionados) will include a quiver of arrow furnishings ranging from the dining room’s arrow-back chairs to that pair of T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings arrow lamps—not to mention the dartboard in the den! Globes, maps, and bull’s-eye motifs will also hit home (on a doorway molding, a table base, or the comfy seat where they do their armchair traveling), as will anything with an equine theme.
Archers are centaurs, after all—half human and half horse—so be on the lookout for hunting prints, horse-and-hound toile patterns, even, if space permits, a traffic-stopping, life-size horse lamp.
The ideal gift? A new itinerary, of course! So get cracking on Kayak.com, or choose a gift certificate to a well-traveled shopping site such as Indagare or Wanderloot. And anything horsey is sure to please, from a Breyer’s plastic horse for the kiddies to a Rosa Bonheur painting for the grownups.
