- Add it to a Space That Needs Texture
Interior desginers typically add faux fur to a neat and tidy space when they want it to be just a tad cozier or more inviting
“When we use faux fur, we’re looking for some really luscious texture in the room,” says Erin Gates. Boston based interior designer and author of Elements of Style. “If you look at a space and everything is neat,tidy, and clean, you want something that’s sumptuous and cozy.It’ll really elevate the space”
2. Limit It To One Or Two Items
On the note of a faux fur throw pillow, rug or throw, take note; You get to choose one or two. Not all three.
“It’s definitely possible to go overboard with faux fur , so try to limit it to one or two items stragtegically placed in a room.”Says Gates. “Otherwise, it starts looking like you live in Atartica and you wnet overboard with a trend. Just a touch of it is sophisticated.”
3.Look At The Tone And Fur Length
As with any interior design purchase, it’s important to research what compaies in your area sell the highest quality faux fur, and to inspect it yourself before buying
“Look for items that have longer hair, so it doesn’t look fake” says McGlendon, Los Angeles based interior designer.
“Lok for items that have longer hair, so it doesn’t look fake”, say McGlendon.”I also look for a lot of variation in tone, so items that aren;t just a flat gray or a flat white, but that really have a rich tonal variety”
4. Go Lighter For Longevity
If you live in a climate that is warm year-round, or simply don’t want to change out your faux fur decor once spring and summer arrive, opt for a lighter colour.
“Faux fur can really be year-round when it’s in the right colours, like grays, creams and lighter tans,” says Gates. “Darker, warmer tones tend to lean more toward winter and fall.”
5.Pair It With The Right Materials
Faux fur is especially adept at making a cool, modern space cozier.
“It’s really fun to pair opposties.”says McGlendon. “So if you have an overly modern space, throw a little faux fur on, say , the wire chairs to give it that jusxtaposition of contemporary with an inviting element. It makes it feel less cold”
6.Start With The Bedroom
“The best room to use faux fur in is the bedroom for sure, because it’s so cozy,”says Gates.”The second would be the living room, because it’s so nice to cuddle up with on a sofa. plus, if you have pets, they love cuddling up on that faux fur , too”
7.Place Faux Fur Somewhere People Can Touch It
The appeal of Fuax fur is in its blend of opulence and coziness, and its ability to make a room more engaging.
“Faux fur encourages engagement in a space,”says Gates.”Most people are tactile, so having something in your space that’s soft is appealing and makes people want to go into the room and touch it”
