5 Ways with Faux Fur

Since the start of the Scandinavian trend we have seen fur being used in unexpected ways around the home. It adds warmth, texture and a sense of luxury to a space. I have bought a few meters of charcoal faux fur for next to nothing at my local fabric shop and it has served me well. Here are my top 5 ways with faux fur.


Floor pillows are great for occasional seating and give a relaxed feel to the room on the left. I love the placement of the top pillow slightly twisted and propped up against the other – it shows off the shape and texture of the pillows best.

Fur gets used a lot in Scandinavian style bedrooms. But it does not have to be a large piece covering the entire bed: here it works great in black and white as a small piece at the end of the bed tying up the tones used in the rest of the bedroom decor. stilinspiration


Add texture to your floor with one of these lovely rugs. They come in all sorts of shapes and colours to suit your room. Just look at the lovely pink variation on the right! The shaggy grey rug on the left breaks up the tile pattern floor, providing a bit of a breather. zsazsabellagio sfgirlbybay


The dining room picture on the left with the Eames chairs covered with creamy shades is probably the most used application of fur in Scandinavian interiors. It has been with us for a while but I still love this unexpected combination and in this particular setting it works beautifully. If you want to go more dramatic try the black shaggy fur throw on the right over a low bench and echo it with black antlers. The composition in this picture is simply stunning: look how the item of clothing links the space between the bench and antlers! lookslikewhite dropdeadgorgeousdaily


Combine a fur throw on your sofa with different textured scatter cushions to play on texture. It’s a quick and simple addition that makes a great impression. The rule of working in threes or uneven numbers are used here with the black frames, standing lamp and black scatter echoing each other in the space, creating a visual balance between the elements. decocrush
