Fur Desk Chairs

Materials: Torbjorn Swivel Chair and 2 RENS Sheepskin Rugs

Description: I “re-upholstered” 2 Torbjorn Swivel Chairs in faux-fur with 4 RENS Sheepskin Rugs total. I laid one small fur rug along the front of the chair and one on the back. I used about 25-30 safety pins to pin the fur to the mesh material on the chair and then to pin the two fur rugs to one another around the chair. The total process took about 30 minutes, and the chairs look amaaazing!

    Great idea, and the chairs do look great. You should be clear, however that these are not “faux fur” and stated in the first paragraph. Rens Sheepskins are just that, the skins of a sheep with their fur attached.
