Currently coveting: Bench and Icelandic sheepskin


Currently coveting: Bench and Icelandic sheepskin

create a stylish look with a bench and sheepskin

You know how you sometimes spot a trend and think, I must have that immediately!


How weird are you?

Just kidding.

I joke, but seriously, don’t you just love this simple yet stylish look? Ideal for a hallway or any little nook in need of some sprucing up. And what I love most (because I’m impatient and want to get it things done asap) is that it can be achieved with minimal effort. But mostly, I’m just thinking about how much I want it right now. Winter is on its way after all.

Whilst I think that almost any style of bench will do, the key to getting this look right is a beautifully fluffy Icelandic sheepskin…. one that you’ll just want to lie down on and fall asleep. In front of a fire. Not likely to be happening in Dubai any time soon, but I will not be deterred.

Here’s a look at how you can steal this style for yourself. I certainly plan to.

As always, you can implement style on any budget. And just like that, you’re ready for winter.
