Sheepskin throws as chair covers

So using a sheepskin as a chair cover is not exactly a new trend but seems to be an enduring one, especially with the current popularity of Scandinavian style interiors.

On sites like Pinterest, great images of home interiors featuring sheepskin covered chairs keep popping up.

As well as looking great, using a sheepskin as a chair cover is practical and flexible option, in the living room, dining room and home office. Here are some great examples we’ve found and pinned...


Sheepskins on armchairs and sofas - either laid on the seat pad or draped over the arm - add texture and cosiness in a room where you relax. It’s great to both look at and feel, plus adds padding and extra comfort when sitting in the chair itself.

Sheepskin throws are also handy if you want your pets to share the sofa with you but not to sit on the sofa fabric!


More sheepskins are also appearing as covers for dining room chairs and benches. These are often hard wood so adding a sheepskin makes the seating softer and more comfortable for a longer dinner or evening of entertaining round the dining table.

Using in an area where food and drink is consumed, you might need to clean up any spills on the sheepskin. To keep it in good condition, check out our sheepskin care guide.

Sheepskins as home office chair covers

A sheepskin can solve the conundrum of having a chair that looks stylish in your home office (often in a multi-purpose space) but is also comfortable enough to do work from.

Typical office chairs are the most comfortable ones for long periods of sitting but they’re also ugly beasts that look totally out of place in a home setting.

By covering a more standard dining or bedroom chair with a sheepskin, you can soften the hard back edge as well as seat area so you can sit there for longer.
