Sheep skin rugs layered overtop larger rugs or propped over furniture seemed to be a popular trend in 2011. I like that it adds texture and softness, giving the space a sense of warmth.
My grandparents had sheep skins rugs at the foot of their bed, and I remember always wanting to bring one downstairs to play on. I have an inexpensive faux sheep skin rug propped over wicker storage boxes in my family room. I like it.
Right now, I’m obsessing over these sheep skin benches. Real or faux, I think they add character and a sense of playfulness to the space. What do you think?
