Feel the Heat

Soft, furry, nubby designs warm up any room.

By Jorge S. Arango


Covering the Contre-Jour bed from Roche Bobois is Ondea fabric, which resembles a thick, cable-knit sweater. Add large-format plaid mohair or smaller-form plaid Picasso throws for warmth. $3,890–$4,175 (bed); $318 and $212 (throws respectively);

Royale Tip-Dyed Pillows from UGG are made of white faux fur tinged with Fusion Coral (salmon color) or Brambleberry (red) to add some fashion to their fluff. Each has a canvas back and slips off for washing. $49;

Orior is a family-owned company based in Ireland, but the inspiration for its André chair is 1960s Scandinavia. The nubby, cotton-wool Nestle fabric from Maharam comes in four colors: Embark (ivory), Antique (gray), Motif (beige), and Hoax (black), and is customizable upon request. $5,650;

Fabric designer Michele Dopp’s travels through Belgium, France, and Switzerland inspired Fabric & Steel’s cuddly new winter Knit collection of textiles woven from virgin wool, cotton, Belgian linen, and, for strength, viscose and polyester. $150/yard;

Ben Soleimani, the rug designer known for his Restoration Hardware offerings (among other things), recently launched his eponymous home brand. Among its products are silky soft cashmere throws in muted neutrals. $295–$795;

Kelly Wearstler introduced her Soufflé chair in 2012. Now she has reimagined that signature furnishing in black goat fur, which gives it an entirely different demeanor. Orders take as long as 24 weeks for delivery. About $13,000;

Kyle Bunting discovered the work of Brooklyn-based artist Matt Neuman at Art Basel Miami Beach and a collaboration, Radiance, was born. The series of hide rugs reference universal symmetry and geometry, magnetic fields, and human origins. About $118/square foot;

These throws from Ethan Allen may look like the real thing, but don’t be fooled. Though they’re soft and thick to the touch, no animal had to lose its hide. Made of acrylic and polyester, the chevron-patterned throws are also fully machine washable. $420;
