How to style your Sheepskin rug this Winter
Luxuriously soft, elegantly designed and incredibly versatile, a Sheepskin rug truly is the perfect Winter warmer. A high quality Sheepskin piece can instantly elevate a simple space and transform it into a charming home, fit for family festivities. Whether you’re searching for small, single Sheepskin rugs to add a subtle touch to your decor or large, quad Sheepskin rugs to create an indulgent centrepiece in your home, we’re here to help. To demonstrate just how great these rugs are, we’re here to show you how we, the Rug Gurus, style our beautiful Sheepskin rugs over the Winter period.
In front of the fireplace
A drop in temperature means it’s time to cosy up in front of a log burning fire with a luxuriously soft Sheepskin rug. Turn your living room into a scene from a festive romcom by adding a rich accent feature in the form of a beautiful fur rug. Our 100% natural, New Zealand, long haired wool will create a comforting tactile haven your family members and pets will love to lay on.
Next to your bed
As the days get shorter and the mornings get colder, it gets a little harder to leave the comfort of our warm beds. By placing a deep pile Sheepskin rug at either side of your bed, getting up on a cold and frosty morning seems a lot less daunting. Make mornings easier by sinking your toes into a shaggy fur rug as soon as you leave your bed.
Draped over a chair
Rugs don’t always have to belong on the floor! Transform your rug into a sheepskin throw for your chair or drape your rug over a pouffe or ottoman to add an elegant dimension to your seating arrangements. Layer over stiff and uncomfortable chairs to create something a little cosier or turn an already snug spot into the ultimate comfort haven you can’t wait to sink into.
Outside on the patio
On a sunny Winter’s day, create your own outdoor Christmas village by decorating your garden or patio area with warm lighting and plush textures. Add a breath of fresh air to outdoor furnishings with a luxurious white Sheepskin rug. Mixing long haired wool with wooden furniture creates a bold and beautiful aesthetic familiar with Scandi interior design. Pair style with comfort by draping over hard benches and stools to create a comfy cushioned seat.
We would not recommend leaving your real Sheepskin rug outdoors in bad weather, as the hand crafted wool fibres need to be cared for in order to maintain their plush texture. Take care of your Sheepskin rug and it’ll take care of you!
On cold, hard floors
Warm up bare floors with the heat trapping features of a Sheepskin fur rug, guaranteed to treat your bare feet during the colder months with the warm relief of the plush, long haired fur rug. Break up large spaces with the inviting textures of a colourful Sheepskin rug your guests will love to step onto.
In high traffic areas, your fluffy fur rugs might experience some wear and tear. To keep your Sheepskin rug looking as good as new, we recommend occasionally brushing through the fur with a wire pet brush. Brushing your rug will help prevent matting and improve the overall appearance of your rug as you fluff up the deep pile.
