If you're looking to warm up your home for winter, nothing gets the job done faster than draping a fur over a couch or chair. It's a great way to instantly give your home a bit of that cozy-Danish-meadhall vibe. As you'll notice from the inspiration photos, this is an especially popular option for modern pieces that are minimal and elegant, but maybe a little less than completely comfortable. Definitely beats sitting on cold wire mesh all winter long.
If you love the look, IKEA's Rens sheepskin ($29.99) is a good budget-friendly option. And if you'd prefer not to decorate with fur, they also have a faux sheepskin that's only $9.99. This post has plenty of other options, in all different colors, and Black Sheep White Light sells Icelandic sheepskins (and reindeer hides) that are a bit bigger than the IKEA ones and have a nice, wild, rustic feel.
