Warm Up With a Sheepskin Throw
Add a Fuzzy Accent to Your Sofa, Chair or Floor
The other day I found myself flush with store credit after making some returns to a big box retailer. Naturally, I had to remedy that immediately. In addition to a few necessities, I couldn't help but eye a completely unnecessary but totally sumptuous and affordable sheepskin throw. "What the hey," I thought. Into the cart it went, and I'm so happy it did. This versatile piece has already warmed up my living room, and judging by the vast ideas below, I can see it working in a wide array of other areas of the home as well.
A tailored sofa feels more casual and welcoming with a few throw pillows and a sheepskin draped on the back.
I love a lounge for kicking up your feet. The addition of a plush throw makes it even more enticing.
When it's three o'clock in the morning and you've barely had any sleep, every little comfort helps — including a cushy spot for your feet when checking on the baby.
Butterfly chairs are lightweight and loungey, but those steel frames aren't the most comfortable for prolonged sitting. With a sheepskin providing some extra padding, the chairs are instantly upgraded.
Likewise, guests will appreciate a softened seat while dining.
Way more glamorous than your standard terrycloth bathmat, a sheepskin rug also feels way better on your toes post-bath.
Is this a flokati or sheepskin throw? Either way, it softens this black leather sofa and makes it feel more inviting.
Nothing like ice-cold floors to immediately jolt you out of post-sleep bliss. A furry mat by the bed keeps your feet toasty instead.
A soft sheepskin on your back might take the edge off a long workday (or at least keep your seat nice and cozy).
Am I the only one who always ends up slowly sliding out of a leather chair when I try to sit in one? I hope not. Regardless, a little throw positioned on the back would surely help me stay in place.
