Faux Fur in Winter Decor

Marian ParsonsDecorating, Holiday

Faux fur has been in decor for a while, but I have to admit that I was never really drawn to it.  The main reason, and this is probably a little silly, is that it always looked and felt Muppet-ish to me.  You know what I mean?  It felt matted and like polyester, not sumptuous and silky.

Well, I’m finally coming around.  Either faux fur has come a long way or I’ve finally been exposed to the good faux fur that’s been out there for a while.

When I was looking at dog beds for Sebastian, I surprised myself that I was drawn to the Ivory Alpaca Faux Fur Pet Bed from Pottery Barn.  It just looked so inviting!  Jeff joked that I was shopping for a dog bed for myself.  What else do I have to base the buying decision on except for what I think will look comfortable?

And it’s soft and comfy, just as I hoped it would be.  Well, I haven’t slept on it, but Sebastian does regularly and he seems to enjoy it!  (Calvin has curled up on it a few times, but we make him get in his bed!)

Pottery Barn asked if I would be interested in trying out a few more of their faux fur products.  Since I was so pleased with the feel of Sebastian’s bed and I’ve loved my Cozy Cable Knit throw (with a faux sheepskin side) for a few years, I agreed.

My favorite faux fur at the moment is faux sheepskin, like these pillow covers.  They are a “quieter fur” that look downy and fluffy and, to me, have a more casual look.  If you’re thinking about introducing faux fur into your home for the winter, I think this is a good place to start.  It doesn’t give the “glam” look that you get with some of the sleeker faux furs.  It’s a bit more subtle, which I like.

I decided to give a sleeker, more luxurious fur throw a try with the Gathered Faux Fur Throw in Alpaca, which is a creamy white.  It really is a lovely throw that I am tucked under as I write this post and I feel like it lends a festive feel, nudging my home decor into a Christmasy direction.

And it’s even prettier in person.  It’s a sumptuously soft fur on one side and a velvety smooth fabric on the other.

The Cozy Cable Knit Throw has been known as the “mommy blanket” for a few years, but this one is the new “mommy blanket”.

Although, I will share.  I mean, how can I not?

If using faux fur in your home isn’t your thing, faux fur on your feet is hard to resist!

Pottery Barn also has faux fur slippers and booties

…and lots of other fuzzy things like stockings, tree skirts, and more.

And Pottery Barn is currently offering 20% off and free shipping on all throws as well as 20% off robes and slippers.

So, how do you like your faux fur?
