All Fluffed Up: This Autumns Cosiest Trend (And The World’s Most Simple DIY IKEA Hack!



I’ve kind of got over my end of summer angst and finally starting to embrace the chillier Autumn days, dhow about you? There’s something about the idea of layering the home with cosy blankets, warm chestnut tones and lots of candlelight that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! But there’s also another cosy item to hit the scene and it’s fuzzier than ever. It all started with the re-emergence of the short faux furry Teddy jacket back in 2016 (so called for its ‘teddy bear’ appearance) – an item that has become a bit of a wardrobe staple in 2019. And now stools, armchairs and sofas are being upholstered in undeniably cosy, super fluffy fabrics too. From The Tired Man armchair to the Banana Sofa (great names!) – this Autumn’s seating is akin to a big bear hug – just add tea!

How To Make Your Own Faux Fur Stool

What you need:

  • Black paint
  • Faux white fur 


What to do

  • Glue the section of faux fur to the foam and the foam to the seat
  • Paint the legs black

Et Voilà!
