Now that autumn has arrived, it’s time to embrace all things cozy. Specifically, faux fur. While faux fur might not be one of the first textiles that come to mind, it is one that’s gaining quite a bit of popularity. And why not? Faux fur is warm, welcoming, and incredibly stylish. Here are 5 tips for using luxurious and inviting faux fur in your home this season. 

Adding Luxurious Faux Fur to Your Home Decor Plano Designer Fabrics

1. Use faux fur in areas that need texture

If you have a neat and tidy space that you’d like to be a tad cozier or more inviting, faux fur can check both of those boxes. Not only do can you enjoy the textural feel of faux fur, but the visual texture it brings can really elevate a room.

2. Pair faux fur with the right materials

Faux fur can certainly make a statement on its own, but it shines even brighter when paired appropriately. Take an ultra-modern space, for example. With sleek lines and wood or lacquered surfaces, a splash of faux fur can bring just the right amount of eye-catching contrast. When it comes to other fabrics, faux fur pairs well with a variety of materials, ranging from silks to velvets to heavy wool.

3. Pay attention to faux fur color and length

Just as with most other types of fabric, faux fur comes in various colors. Instinctively you might reach for flat gray or white and call it good, but something with more tonal variety may actually be the better choice. Or, if it’s a light color you’re after, cream looks more natural than stark white. Additionally, when it comes to color, darker faux furs tend to work better in fall and winter. Lighter-colored options, on the other hand, give you longevity, allowing you to keep your faux fur pieces out year-round. 

In regards to length, the longer the hair, the less fake it looks. And of course, the more real it looks, the better quality it usually is. 

Fur It Up Any Way You Like It

The great thing about faux fur is that it can be used in so many different ways. 

  • Throw blankets. For some cozy feels, all it takes is a faux fur throw blanket. Not only does it bring that inviting warmth to the surface, but it also adds more texture and interest to the space. 
  • Chair cushions. Yes, faux fur chair cushions exist! Consider them if you want to give a certain area of your home some trendy appeal. 
  • Area rugs. A faux fur rug is a great way to add both warmth and style to your hardwood floors. 
  • Bedding. You can never go wrong with bringing faux fur into the bedroom. Layer it on the bed during the fall and winter months. 
  • Ottomans. For a unique touch to your living room, consider a faux fur ottoman or pouf. It’s a perfect way to add some lushness in an unexpecting way.
  • Accent pillows. Pillows are hands down one of the best ways to add that extra pop of style to a space. Whether it’s year-round or only for the colder seasons, a faux fur pillow or two can make all the difference.
