Home Inspiration: Sheepskin Throw

Monday, February 7, 2011

For a while now I'm swooning over sheepskin throws as I think they give an instant warmth and coziness to any space. They look lovely on a bedroom floor, hanging over a chair or even on a bed.

Then the other day I spotted the Black Sheep (white light) and I was impressed by their concept. All their throws are made of 100% eco-friendly Icelandic sheepskin (without using harmful chemicals) and as a bonus they also donate $5 of their proceeds from each sale to the homeless in Toronto. Darlings, do you have sheepskin throws in your home? What's your experience with them? xoxo

Ps: Totally smitten with  this one!

Love that one that's eco friendly and donates 5$ to the homeless. It's so great when companies give back. SO GREAT.

Wendy said...

Great idea, Diane (as usual)! The more I think about it the more I can see using a sheepskin throw as a beautiful accent. Love how they donate to a good cause. As for that office set up- very cool!

Nuha said...

i love sheepskin throws! They are perfect infront of a cozy fire :)

mylifereinvented said...

OOOH. It looks amazing and eco-friendly, yes please! I would buy one in a minute if my daughter was in her distraction phase. Nice find. Kisses!

Felicity said...

I'm smitten too Diana and have actually posted about wanting a replica Eames chair with sheepskin similar to the one you've posted in the top photo.

I actually mentioned this to my brother last night as we discussed what he could get me for my birthday in March....fingers crossed!

I love sheep skin. It's so "sheep" here. I should get some.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! xo

I love sheepskin rugs. My mom wouldn't get a portable crib in her home when we came to visit with our babies. She swore that infants love to sleep on sheepskin. And it is true! xo Samantha

I like the sheepskin look. I don't have any sheep skins here and to be totally honest, I wasn't sure where to find them...thanks for the link.

Diana Mieczan said...

Thanks, Bryce!! So nice of you:)

Heather Taylor said...

If I had a sheepskin, I doubt I'd have a bed. They look so comfy, I would just roll myself up in one haha :)
