How to Decorate With Sheepskin Rugs

Enhance Your Living Spaces with Luxurious Soft Sheepskin Rugs

Transforming your living space into a cozy haven is as simple as draping a sheepskin rug over the back of your sofa. The long, flowing hair of Icelandic sheepskins or Tibetan lambskins adds a plush and textural accent that captivates onlookers. Visitors are drawn to the soft wool, inevitably reaching out to stroke its comforting texture.

For an aesthetically pleasing touch, place a single sheepskin off-center, leveraging the power of asymmetry. Balance the visual appeal by adorning the opposite side of the sofa with additional cushions or a blanket.

Opt for natural black or brown sheepskins, as they seamlessly integrate into this chic arrangement. Sink into your sofa and experience the ultimate comfort as you lean against the soft and warm wool.

Decorating with sheepskin rugs at home

Nudge the luxury up a notch with a double sheepskin, two skins skilfully sewn together to create an extra-long wool rug. Perfect for the chilly winter, especially on leather sofas, a double sheepskin on the seat provides both warmth and comfort.

Alternatively, drape it over the back of the sofa from left to right, centering it for a stylish look that also protects against sun damage or pet claws.

Extend the allure of sheepskin to other furniture pieces by draping rugs over chairs or ottomans. Whether on the seat or over the back, a single sheepskin effortlessly elevates the aesthetic, especially on dining chairs or wire-frame chairs that lack cushions.

Elderly people seeking extra warmth, softness, and support for sore hips and backs will find solace in the comfort of sheepskins.

Consider a double-length sheepskin in a La-Z-Boy-style armchair, providing a blissful experience. Scatter single skins on ottomans or footstools for a soft seat or footrest, creating a warm and soothing atmosphere in the winter. Sheepskins can be used anywhere in your home.

Explore various possibilities, from a double sheepskin in front of the fireplace to a matched pair beside your bed.

Your pet will gravitate towards the sheepskin, making it an excellent tool for strategically placing your dog's or cat's favourite spot. Alternatively, pamper your pet with a sheepskin pet bed.

Enhance your home theatre room with a large sheepskin rug, providing both comfort and excellent acoustics. Choose from multiples of four, six, or eight skins sewn together for a customized look in a variety of colour options.

Bring warmth and style to your child's bedroom with fun-coloured sheepskins or neutral options like Buddy the Bear sheepskin. Place a single or double sheepskin beside their bed, offering a soft and fluffy start to every day. Sheepskins make a great play rug.

Lastly, bring the comfort of sheepskin to your home or work office chair or your teenager's study chair. Ideal for those long periods of sitting, a sheepskin adds a touch of luxury to your workspace.
