From Instagram to the latest interiors magazines, it seems like it’s impossible to go a day without seeing a sheepskin at present. Perfect for an injection of texture on the lounge or as a floor rug, a sheepskin is a versatile piece that is not only beautiful and soft to lie on, but its breathability makes it appropriate all year round. From Mongolian and Icelandic iterations to faux ones, there’s a sheepskin for every budget.
