I love the look of fur throws, so lush, but my efforts at a cruelty free approach to life don’t allow me to indulge in the real thing. Until, the discovery of these Luxe Faux throws from Restoration Hardware which have now become one of my favorite things. It re-creates the natural weight, depth of color and indulgent softness of genuine fur without being genuine fur and not looking synthetic, brilliant!
I admit, I actually have two of them. One of which was originally a gift but never left the house, oops. The faux Mink one lies across the bottom of my bed over a crisp white duvet. This helps soften up the starkness of the white but doesn’t distract from the neutral pallet of the bedroom. A great way to layer and add texture and make any room feel richer. The other is faux Lynx and sits on the sofa. Both are super soft and feel very luxurious. They are made from synthetic materials with the reverse side a matched color in soft velvet.
Now, if you’re wondering why a beauty blogger is writing about a throw blanket the answer is because it not only looks beautiful as part of any home décor but also makes me feel beautiful. There is something about sitting on the sofa wrapped up in a fur throw that somehow evokes warmth and sultriness all while being super functional!
Final thoughts –
It’s an amazing gift for someone special who has everything.
The new RH catalog arrived and it’s as big or bigger than the September issue of Vogue weighing in at a hefty 5 ½ pounds. The throw might be cruelty free but environmentally unfriendly.
