It’s been a while since the last installment of my ‘Spotted’ series. Basically cool and useful stuff that I find online, which I just must share.
Not sure if there’s a technical term for it, but for lack of a better word, I’m calling this the ‘furry chair’ episode. Cause I kinda like the sound of it. I think furry chairs are a must have item; they’re comfy, warm and inviting. Plus they look so stylish and timeless.
Here are two versions; the costly designer version and the modest diy. Both look equally as fabulous, the only difference really is the price.
The Designer Version
The first photo is the beautifully styled room by designer Ryan Korban. He uses two fur chairs to contrast and add some warmth across from the gorgeous tufted leather couch. The chairs also continue the animal theme from the cheetah rug on the floor.
I couldn’t find where the chairs were purchased or how much they cost, but it’s just as well cause I’m pretty sure I can’t afford them.
The Affordable Version
I love everything about this room, but I think the furry chair definitely takes center stage. This DIY fur chair version was created by ‘The Nester’ using $20 of faux fur and a $5 yard sale chair in under 30 minutes.
The best part is, wait for it, it’s no sew. Yes you got it right, not only was this chair incredibly easy and cheap to create, it doesn’t involve any sewing at all.
Now that’s my kind of project.
Even more diy furry chair tutorials:
Here’s another no sew option by bijou and boheme. I love how these shaggy chairs look in the room. They add a little 70′s funk into the more contemporary environment.
Say hello to Becks and Bieber. The chairs are named after David Beckham and Justin Bieber, love it. Not only were these chairs recovered they were completely overhauled. They guys at Mod Frugal actually even fixed the broken frame of the one of the chairs. You must check out their super detailed tutorial.
Last but not least…If you don’t have a chair to work with why not just recover an old stool? That’s what Cindy over at Viva Cindy did. Check out her furry footstool.
While I was researching for this post I came across some other great animal inspired designer vs diy pieces which I’ll be bringing to you in the coming weeks.
