Wild and wooly: 9 ways to decorate with fuzzy fur

In a new series, On Trend, we’re asking designers to share their favorite of-the-moment finds.

Maybe it’s the scorching August sun that has visions of ski resorts dancing in our heads, but fuzzy winter wools seem to be everywhere right now. (Gen Z is even finding hip new ways of repurposing their grandmother’s boucle suits, The Guardian reports.) Of course, though it’s lately resurfacing, “furry wool has been a staple in the design industry, both in interiors and fashion, for some time now,” designer Jenelle Lovings tells Business of Home. “It is full of texture, which adds depth and interest to any piece.”

Inspired, we asked Lovings and two other designers—Nina Magon and Abbe Fenimore—to each tell us their three wildest, wooliest picks of the season, and how to use them now.

Mid-Century Pillows in Blanc Boucle by Kardiel
“What I love the most about this boucle ball is that all you need is one. Even though it is one of the simplest forms, it isn’t common to see a sphere as a pillow. That alone makes it stand out.”

Borrego Small Round Ottoman by Crate & Barrel
“What’s most striking about this little ottoman is that you get the texture of the white wool boucle and the contrast of its black cerused legs. So much depth in such a small piece.”

Rebecca Chair by AF Home
“Sheepskin fabric on accent chairs gives lounge spaces a modern yet cozy vibe. The soft texture and short nap of the fabric is appealing for clients who want their homes to feel approachable and not too fussy.”

Tibetan Mongolian Sheepskin Fur Throw Pillow by Pillow Décor
“Mongolian curly fur pillows have become one of my go-tos for infusing texture and color. Yes, neutral hues are easier to find, but sometimes you need a pop of color with great texture—and that’s where curly fur comes in.”

“When a little glam is a must (who am I kidding—it’s always a must!), a fur-and-brass-accent chair will do the trick.”
