Dress Up Your Home With a Faux Fur Rug


Visitors: 594

Faux fur is simply fake fur. Faux is French for ‘not real', and is pronounced like the word “foe". Today it is a popular alternative to using real fur. Earlier it was considered a cheap choice only meant for the lower classes; however, with changing times faux fur is fast becoming a style statement. This is also the case for animal lovers who are assured that no animals are killed for procuring their hides to make the rugs that design their homes.

Major designers who once worked with fur are under constant pressure from organizations like the People for Animals to stop using the real thing. The number of designers using real fur has hence slowly declined. Besides, the quality of faux fur has increased with the years. Acrylic furs with no-skid backings are luxurious and beautiful and pass off as the real fur any day. Also, fabrics that are used are such that they can be used for any print and color almost imitating the real animal fur. With appropriate padding and lining faux fur garments can provide the warmth needed in the winters as well paving the way for possible elimination of real fur products.

The most sensual and luxurious fabrics are converted into hundreds of varieties of faux fur rugs. These look amazing and can brighten up any room and come in all prints imaginable. Try furry sheepskin or printed ocelot rug in your living room; or a zebra print rug for your bathroom! Better still pick up a Mongolian lamb area rug. It is lavish yet functional, it's 100% acrylic is super soft, and to top it all it is machine washable. This is sure to lend a warm contemporary accent to your living room. One really interesting rug I found is bound to delight your children! It's a faux fur bear rug complete with an open mouth with fur teeth and tongue and fur claws! It's cute, non-threatening and a soft cuddle-up toy for your kids.

There are a number of faux fur throw rugs for your bedroom to snuggle into during winters. Plush angora colored rugs keep you warm at night; and their hundred percent acrylic fur and polyester lining make them breathable and comfortable to sleep on. So you could use them on your bed or the couch. Flokati rugs have been a tradition with Greece for centuries. Now, they are hand made with wool and touches of polyester for that softness and wonderful sheen. One of these in your living area could add quite a sparkle!

You could buy a soft, shaggy, sumptuous rug for practically every room in your home. They have been increasingly used to do up a nursery, kitchen or the dining area. Mostly a rug is exquisitely dreamy and resonates beauty and comfort. With over 3 million registered importers and exporters of faux fur rugs and as many designs and sizes; with most of them available online, you will never have any trouble choosing just the one for your home!
