Bring Warmth into Your Home with These Five Cozy Textures

Warm Up with These 5 Cozy Textures!

While we love transforming spaces on a broad scale with new paint, furniture and accessories, we are also huge fans of making little swaps that yield big impact on a space. Less work with big reward? Who wouldn’t be a fan? With these last few weeks of winter ahead of us, why not get extra cozy by incorporating one (or all) of these warmth-inducing textures into your home?



Thick and sumptuous wool accents, like rugs, add a huge amount of warmth to any space and are a total treat for the feet! Choose a wool rug in a bright hue or bold pattern for instant visual appeal.

Wool isn’t just for the floor (or your favorite sweater)!  Snuggle up on the sofa or in bed, and warm up with a wool throw or comfy wool decorative pillow.  Five options we love:

Add a dose of warmth and luxury to any space by incorporating velvet accents. Some of our favorite velvet pieces include our Stellata Quilted Velvet Bed Runner and Pillow, Vienna Velvet Quilt, Cira Velvet Swanson Bench and our new Gloss Velvet Pillows from the Artisanal Collection!

Placing a knit blanket at the end of your bed or draping a knit throw over the arm of your sofa makes it easy to snuggle up for movie nights or provide that extra dose of warmth on chilly evenings.  Two favorites that we just can’t stop gushing about include the Remy Knit Blankets and Yarn Bomb Throws both from our Artisanal Collection. They’re beyond soft to the touch, have great texture, and come in a variety of soothing, nuanced colors to suit any decorating palette.

Of course, we can’t forget about our tried and true (and ultra-soft) Cozy Knit Throws and Comfy Cable Knit Throws!

Sheepskin may just be the comfiest textile of all, no? Fluffy, lofty, snuggly and oh-so-soft, we couldn’t resist adding a collection of sheepskin décor items ourselves including sheepskin rugs, pillows and even a sheepskin nest!

Although we may typically associate fluffy sheepskins with chilly winter months, sheepskin accents actually translate seamlessly from season to season! With spring right around the corner, consider adding a colorful sheepskin to your home for warmth and a touch of springtime color:

Another easy-going textile, perfect for any season! In the summer, a linen throw or duvet adds a breathable layer to your bed and offers a cooling affect while providing just the right amount of warmth during winter months. Our best-selling Ines bedding couples a classic, colorful pattern with this easy-to-love natural textile. ­

Besides Ines, some of our favorite linen pieces include:
