Recently we have been counting sheep. Sheepskin that is…Mongolian Sheepskin which is the haute trend popping up everywhere fashionable lately. Think retro glam meets 60’s nostalgia. From home goods to apparel this look is fun and fresh, and can be adapted to a variety of styles and spaces
The Jigsaw Designers love this trend to add texture and a bit of whimsy to an otherwise stale space. In the images below the grey monochromatic rooms are beautiful, however the grey sheepskin throw adds that extra something special to maximize the look of the room with the texture from the throw. These two rooms have a more traditional look to them, so the sheepskin helps create a slight retro vibe to give these rooms more personality.
For an element of surprise, consider adding a sheepskin bench to your dining area. It’s so soft your guests are sure to linger after dinner.
Benches, pillows and throws are always the easiest update. They are typically affordable and can be replaced as styles change. Some on the other hand are more of a commitment due to the expense, but they are worth it. We love this sheep and Lucite stool by Jonathan Adler; however it will set you back about $1300. If you want to splurge, then the Moss Studio gold metal bench at $2200 is vintage cool at its best.
If you are looking for a more “disposable” price point, then Ikea and Costco have a cute sheepskin throw that is very affordable. Anthropology also offers a Mongolian sheepskin chair and ottoman that are well crafted for a reasonable price.
While this look may not be for everyone’s space, we can all admit it sure looks cozy. Share with us your sheepskin favorites. We enjoy hearing from our readers.
