My favourites: Sheepskins

Today I had a blissful experience sitting on this sheepskin-covered chair at Ikea. Ikea is not my favourite place to buy furniture, but I can't deny it is one of the most comfortable chairs I've ever sat on. I was transfixed to the spot, unable to move, even though my aim was to be out within an hour (actual time 3 and a half hours, oops.) I'm easily lured by any kind of sheepskin, especially if it's layered over something else, such as a chair or sofa. Habitat has a huge sheepskin rug which I'm saving up for (i.e. waiting for Elle Decoration's bi-annual 20% discount voucher.)

I am in the process of decorating my apartment and would love to have a sheepskin for our couch.

lovely esp the first pic! x
I actually bought a small sheepskin-esque rug from Argos the other week! only £30 and makes climbing out of bed in the morning on to it slightly more pleasant!

I purchased an IKEA sheep skin to yoga/meditate on and then went back for a couple more to make removable slipcovers for pillows -- didn't feel so bad since I eat lamb :|
