Ssheepskins are so perfect for these cold December days, especially for the shivery types like myself. Draped over a chair they add a lovely warmth and softness to your back. Spread on the floor next to your bed they keep the early morning iciness from your feet. Added as a lining to a pram will keep your baby warm, soft and sleepy (yeah, so you can do some shopping!).

But besides all that, sheepskins add texture and a frivolous fluffiness to an interior.You can add them to any interior, but I think they are at their best in the contemporary loft kind of setting, thrown over a Bertoia chair for example. There are the classic white sheepskins, but more and more I see the longer haired, two- or even three toned skins with wonderful organic patterns made by nature. Let’s hope this little collection will make you feel warm 🙂

Sschapenvachtjes zijn zo fijn voor deze koude December dagen, helemaal voor alle koukleumen zoals ik. Gedrapeerd over een stoel geven ze een heerlijke warmte en zachtheid voor je rug. Als vloerkleed naast je bed beschermen ze je blote voeten tegen die ijzige koude vloer vroeg in de ochtend. Als een extra laagje in de de kinderwagen houden ze je baby lekker warm, zacht en slaperig (yeah, kan jij lekker shoppen).

Maar afgezien van dit alles geven schapenvachtjes textuur en een frivole donzige pluizerigheid aan een interieur. Ze staan leuk in ieder interieur, maar ik vind ze het best tot hun recht komen in de meer industriële, hedendaagse loft-achtige interieurs. Gedrapeerd over een Bertoia stoel bijvoorbeeld. Er zijn de klassieke witte schapenvachtjes, maar ik zie steeds meer gemengde vachten, met lange haren en twee en soms wel drie kleuren in prachtige organische vlekken gemaakt door de natuur. Ik hoop dat je een beetje warm wordt van deze kleine collectie schapenvachtjes 🙂
