Faux fur isn’t just for scarves and coats anymore. One of the hottest 2016 interior design trends is using faux fur in decor and accessories. This soft attention-grabbing material adds a luxurious, yet cozy feel to any space. Here are a few ideas to help you integrate it into your home.

Leather and Faux Fur Accessories

Leather and faux fur pair together naturally. To incorporate faux fur trends in an understated way, start with throw pillows made from leather and outlined with a touch of faux fur. For a look that is more assertive, look for a throw rug that combines these materials or a lounge chair upholstered with leather but featuring faux fur accents.

Stools and chairs

If you would like faux fur to be a more prominent element in your design, choose a side stool or chair that’s upholstered entirely with it. You can choose a soft, subdued shade like cream or white for a more traditional look or a bright shade of purple or teal if you really want to add drama to your design.


Faux fur bedding is not just eye-catching, it’s also outrageously comfortable. Opt for a faux fur comforter and linen pillowcases to tone the look down a bit. Faux fur in natural tones, like mottled brown and gray, is a great choice if you’re going for a more rustic vibe. Paired with wood decor, it can make your bedroom feel like a cabin retreat.

The great thing about faux fur accessories is their unique texture adds a new layer to your design. In natural or artificial colors, faux fur is certainly one of the hottest 2016 interior design trends.
