16 Times the Faux Fur Furniture Trend Made Us Swoon
Like Netflix and crystals, there are some things that have the power to make any home happier, and the faux fur furniture trend is most definitely one of ’em. What makes this style so special, you might wonder? Well, perhaps it’s how faux fur adds more whimsy to an eclectic aesthetic, more glamor to a luxurious look or more cozy to… anything. Then again, it could also be its limitless capacity for uber-chic upgrades and DIY projects. In other words, there’s so much that makes this home decor trend great, it’s impossible to pinpoint any one thing. So do yourself a solid by bringing some luxe faux fur into your nest.

Cozy Home OfficeSure, your home office is meant for getting down to business, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a little (or a lot) playful with its style. In fact, a little faux fur thrown into the mix just might be the creative stimulation you need to get through the dreaded afternoon slump. (via Bliss at Home)
