Hunting Season

Hey, you don't have to be an Aspenite or a Tellurudian (feel free to use with ease at your next cocktail party: those are Google-certified terms) to bring the lodge fervor back to Manhattan.

Here's a few suggestions on how to bring the ski oasis glitz to your place, and the kicker --for less:

The Chic: a French antler rack (above) at a retail price of $650 (if you can afford, yes, a-m-a-z-i-n-g). The Chic for Less: mix-and-match individual antlers retailing from $15 to $20. They're not pictured, but available through www.grandviewmercantile.com or (614) 421-7000.

The Chic: Warm up your limestone floor with a Brazilian cowhide rug for $695 (below). The Chic for Less: VisitEbay to search cowhides straight from the ranch, starting from around $144.
The Chic: Something that you probably saw years ago in your great-granddad's basement: snow shoes, like these vintage ones for $400. The Chic for Less: Pottery Barn's snow shoes reproduction is a close second for $129, and is crafted of solid mahogany, split rattan and faux leather.
See, the Wild West is not just for gold-diggers. Giddy-up!
