Temperatures don’t exactly hit Siberian lows here in Florida. But opulent faux fur accessories still have a place in our hearts and homes.
Why Go Faux?
High quality faux fur has a number of advantages over the real thing. It’s animal friendly, making it a guilt-free and eco-friendly alternative. Being synthetic, it doesn’t require cold storage when not in use and isn’t tempting to hungry moths. Care is less difficult, and an ordinary drycleaner should be able to clean it for you (always check the instructions, of course).
Faux fur throws are both cozy and versatile. Their delightful texture makes throws a luxurious option for warding off the chill when sitting out on the patio in the evenings, and when not in use they can be draped across the foot of a bed or hung strategically over an accent chair. A faux fur throw also adds a soft, fluid counterpoint to the strong lines of a contemporary sectional.
Add an instant touch of luxury to your bed with a scattering of faux fur pillows. Dreamweavers make plump pillows is an array of imitation fur types and colors, including a thick, snowy Faux Lamb and Faux Fox in black, white, silver and fiery red. The Fox and Lamb pillows (see images above) are the perfect pieces for this look!
A faux fur area rug can be as subtle or as bold as you like. Add a taste of the Southwest with a large faux cowhide, or sink your toes into the deep shag of a faux sheepskin. More exotic options range from Dreamweavers’ quality faux striped mink to imitation bearskins and safari prints. The Striped Mink Area Rug (see images above) is a great option for this kind of rug.
