Mid-century modern stool and mongolian fur

I found the most awesome tufted mid-century modern stool on ebay a few months back.

Pin It

I was actually looking for something in bad shape I could cover with fur.


But this one was so nice, I decided to leave it uncovered.


In the meantime, after a pretty lengthy online search, I found the perfect creamy shade of faux mongolian sheep fur on amazon. I bought one yard and intended to cover the stool and make a pillow, but I draped it over the white couch and liked it so much I decided to leave it to protect the white fabric, since that's where I hang out with the kids when we get the chance.


I wanted something there, but didn't want it to look so obviously like "I need to have a throw on this couch to protect it." You know what I mean?


I definitely think it gives the fancy French couch more of a lived in bohemian look and protects it at the same time.


That's kind of how I roll here. I envision one thing, then end up changing it. But that's what makes it fun and keeps things interesting:-)


I'll be joining:

  6. Your room is simply beautiful. I especially fell in love with your vignettes on the armoire, and the corner table. Also, the items framed above the table. The frames are so unique, and altho I can't make out what you have in them. (writings?) I really love the look. Actually, I love it all, the live plants, the American Indian basket, the books, the fur throw, and those gorgeous pillows! You certainly know how to put a room together. Tons of personality....
