Fit for a King


If there’s anything we’ve learned after nearly 15 years of publishing Mountain          Living magazine, it’s that there is not just one “mountain” style. True high-country homes range from traditional to contemporary, cabins to sprawling lodges.

But if your idea of real mountain style is leather, rustic woods and maybe an antler here or there, then we know just where you need to shop: King Ranch Saddle Shop.

It began in the 1800s as a saddlery devoted to expert craftsmanship. Today, its a catalog, website and retail store in Kingsville, Texas, offering an exclusive collection of home furnishings and accessories, luggage, apparel and outdoor gear that celebrates “casual comfort from the ranch.”

Log on to and check out a few of our faves, like the Hair-on-Hide Sociable Sofa (top), the Axis Deer-Hide Chair (middle) and the front-porch-perfect Rock-A-Way Swing.
