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.
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)
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)
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)
