Sheepskin rugs are undoubtedly stylish, subdued and flattering to almost any interior design style, but they’re also a practical home decor choice as well. Not only are they natural bacteria repellents (read: much less cleaning required), but they also provide support and comfort to pressure points, making them great for reducing achy limbs. Unfortunately, genuine sheepskin rugs can be on the expensive end of the spectrum, and if you’re concerned with animal rights or practice a vegan lifestyle, they’re certainly not a good fit. Fortunately, faux and artificial sheepskin rugs have come a long way.
It’s never been easier to find high quality and durable faux alternatives that look and feel just like the real deal than ever before. These leather-free and luxuriously plush cruelty-free rugs are the perfect home decor accent to add a little bit of flair to your couch, accent chair or of course, your floor. From creamy white fur options to colorful spin-offs of the traditional style, there’s a vegan sheepskin rug to fit any home decor style and budget.
