I’ve noticed that there is a HUGE number of designers, stores and magazines showcasing faux sherpa upholstered furniture as of late (and it’s so seasonally appropriate). Mostly on modern frames and accented with wood or brass details, these pieces are both sleek AND cozy. I do wonder about staining/wear in cases of houses with children and pets, but they sure do look like a nice spot to snuggle up with a cup of coffee and read (or binge a Netflix show/scroll instagram). How do you feel about this trend? If it feels like too big of a commitment on a piece of furniture, you can try some pillows or a small ottoman (I actually have a small modern sheepskin ottoman I bought a dozen years ago I still love in my closet!). Also, kids love it- Henry has a sherpa beanbag he sometimes asks to sleep in!
Cute, but I think it’s too trendy now. And not practical with kids.
I bought two faux sheepskin hides from ikea years ago. Other than when I hid them from my dog when he was a puppy, they’ve held up well! They cover my arm chairs at my dining room table… And they are sooo cozy!
I love this trend. Maybe it’s the quarantining mentality that I’m in but I love the softness. I have seen some very gorgeous, very expensive shearling chairs out there and they’re fab. They have a bit of the Scandi feeling which is so popular. Would be great for a northern cottage or ski chalet. I’ve also seen them in black which would be easier to keep clean (if no shedding dogs!).
I just bought a sherpa chair and ottoman from Target: Studio McGee collection and love it! It’s super cozy and petite sized. Disclaimer: I have no kids but I use this as my reading nook chair with a small side table for coffee and my ipad/book. Good price for a quality/trendy item. Stay tuned for how it looks in a few months… :)
I think they are cool, but I wouldn’t think they would be very practical. I wouldn’t purchase one, it would look crazy in my home, but in the right place, I can see it. I would rather get a cozy faux fur throw.
As you said, I think they look cozy and I like the textural look. However, I think they would look terrible within a month of anyone sitting on/using them. Matted texture, grimy surface that just grips every piece of dirt, lint, pet hair, or whatever else gets on furniture. No thank you! I like your idea of trying the look on something smaller/less of a commitment, like a pillow or bean bag chair, though.
Filing that one under pretty but not practical. My dog would have barfed on it within a nanosecond.
Personally, I would not buy furniture such as those above. I like classic and timeless both in furniture and clothing.
I’m with you, Joanne!
Could you do a Sherpa on fashion Friday? I’m looking at slippers jacket etc. would love your insight
I love the look of this, but i also would worry how it would hold up with kids? And i think if you didn’t get like a high end knoll fabric, it would feel cheap, and more attractive in pictures than IRL. I was at Target recently and saw the Studio McGee ottomon. It’s very pretty online, but doesn’t look high end at all in person. Those curvy sofas above are to die for though!
Not my thing…
