The Coziness Factor: A Flair for Fur

The Coziness Factor: A Flair for Fur

As the holidays approach, the days are getting shorter and the temperatures lower. Adding cozy elements like faux or real fur, or a flokati or shag rug to your home can be an easy way to create a homey environment during the holidays.

There's something about the rugged feeling fur gives to a room that visually softens a space and invites you to sink into a comfortable seat and put your feet up. We like to swap out the rugs in our home for warm, white flokati ones, while also adding fur throws to the backs of sofas or chairs. Without even hanging a garland or mistletoe, hauling out any holly, or adding a Santa Claus figurine, the home instantly feels more ready for the season.

You can find sheepskin rugs and furs at retailers like Room and Board or Ikea, and inexpensive wool shag rugs at Cost Plus World Market and also Ikea.
