15 Creative Places to Use the IKEA Sheepskin Rug

A sheepskin rug is versatile, comfortable, uber chic and, thanks to IKEA, super affordable. No, you don’t have to live in a rustic cabin to rock the sheepskin look. The fluffy white fur is an ideal accent for any decor style, from modern Scandinavian to colorful boho. If you’re looking to add some stylish texture to your room, nothing gets the job done faster than draping a fur (or faux fur) over the couch. From floor to nursery to bathroom, here are 15 ways to incorporate the classic little IKEA sheepskin throughout your home.

1. In the Nursery: We love layering rugs, and the nursery is the perfect place to do it. Just think, extra padding for those little knees and your knees too. (via Apartment Therapy)

2. In the Dining Room: Drape one or two sheepskin over the backs of your dining room chairs for an instant bit of glamor. Be careful — your dinner guests might never want to leave. (via I Suwannee)

3. As a Bathmat: Is there anything better than getting out of the tub and sinking your toes into a fluffy pile of fur? Sounds pretty luxurious to us. (via Lonny)

4. At Your Workspace: You’ll be downright anxious to get started on those work projects with a seat like this waiting for you. (via Design Sponge)

5. Out on the Porch: Looking to stay warm on those cool summer evenings while you’re sipping on a colorful cocktail outside? Faux fur will add just the warmth you need. (via Lindsey Hene Interiors)

6. As a Photo Backdrop: Use a sheepskin rug as a snazzy backdrop for your Instagram photos to score an endless number of likes. (via @misslynx2)

7. Create a Separate Space: If you’re living the #studiolife, you know how hard it is to make the living room feel like the living room, not the bedroom. Use a big, textured rug to help make the seating area in the living room feel more intimate. (via Apartment Therapy)

8. By the Bed: Whether you have hardwood floors or carpet, you obviously need a fluffy rug under your feet in the morning. Maybe it would make getting out of bed easier? Maybe? (via Elle Decor)

9. For the Most Stylish of Pets: Durable and washable, the little IKEA sheepskin is perfect for making a super pretty doggie bed. (via Old Brand New)

10. For a Softer Seat: When you’re hosting a big dinner soiree and using things like chests and benches as extra seating, sometimes it’s nice to have something a little cozier to sit on. A tuft of fur keeps guests comfortable and makes additional seating more attractive. (via Apartment Therapy)

11. As a Throw Blanket: A fuzzy throw adds a casual warmth to the sofa, a chair or even tossed across an ottoman. (via Damsel in Dior)

12. Add Texture: If you’re going with a neutral color palette, a sheepskin rug is the perfect way to bring texture into the space without using too much color. (via KK Living)

13. As a Runner: The slender shape of most sheepskins make them perfect for warming up a narrow hallway. Just make sure you put down some non-stick padding so you don’t go sliding into a wall. (via My Domaine)

14. For Unexpected Upholstery: From bar stools to benches and poufs, sheepskin looks great covering just about anything. DIY two of these little stools and then try to decide where to put them. (via French for Pineapple)

15. Anywhere Else You Can Think of: There is no better way to instantly coz-ify a reading nook, breakfast nook or even your closet than with one or two sheepskin rugs. (via Design By Numbers)
