I love the autumn and it only takes a whiff of a bonfire or a slightly chilly breeze in the air to get me thinking about cozying up my home for the cold weather. Whilst we are generally enjoying a gorgeous autumn, I am not to be deflected and am taking the opportunity to add a few seasonal accessories, so where better to start than with a bit of natural sheepskin.
I think you can’t go wrong with simply owning a sheepskin, they are nature’s perfect invention. They are great on a chair, or on the floor for your feet to sink into. Don’t even think of leaving it anywhere that your pet goes or you will have to fight for your spot. Cox and Cox curly sheepskin £165
And if you are won over by a picture of a chair with a sheepskin on it, why not go the whole hog (sheep) with a sheepskin beanbag. Fall into it, and emerge in the spring.
Cox and Cox sheepskin beanbag £750
If you have a bigger floor space to be filled with under foot joy, look no further than The Rug Company. Their Alpaca rug not only looks wonderful but is as tactile as you could possibly desire.

On a slightly more frivolous note, I love this sheepskin sheep footstool by the Wool Room at Not on the High Street. I almost feel like naming it, but I will control myself.
Sheepskin sheep stool, the Wool Room £99
We have featured it before and I still love it – why not have a sheepskin magazine rack?
A + B Furniture (sadly not related to us) £225
And finally, whilst not given to exaggerated sentimentalism myself (she says), I couldn’t resist this sweet heart shaped sheepskin cushion – well why not?
The White Company Sheepskin Heart Cushion £35.00
