Home Décor Ideas: Luxe winter fabrics
When its cold outside and all you want to do is be snuggled up inside, then luxurious winter fabrics are the way to go. They will help create an inviting, warm environment that you’ll be desperate to come home to. Our winter fabric choices will stand the test of time and look as luxe in a few years’ as the day they arrived in your home. Whether you opt for wool, leather or a mohair throw, these winter fabrics are the ultimate luxe accessories to see you through the dreary months that lead up to Spring.
Wool is the ideal winter fabric. This natural fibre fabric will keep you warm and is soft against skin, so it’s perfect to snuggle into when you come in from the cold. Wool is naturally flame resistant, and it’s one of the more durable luxe fabric options.
Leather is a luxurious fabric that always looks chic and sophisticated. It’s a great choice for sofas as it’s durable and long-lasting, which surprisingly also makes it a good choice for homes with children and pets since it can be wiped clean and won’t attract pet hair. Leather can natural crack and wear over time, so read our blog on How to Repair a Leather Sofa for some excellent tips to disguise any splits and damage.
Cashmere really is the ultimate in luxury fabric. It’s super soft, incredibly warm, lightweight and pretty perfect for any room in the home. Our cashmere throws make excellent bed-toppers, sofa snugglers and cosy chair warmers. Wrap up warm and sink down. As cashmere is a delicate fabric, there are few tips to keeping it looking top-notch. Invest in a cashmere comb to remove any bobbling that can occur naturally. Wash your throws in a cool cycle and either hang out or lay flat to dry away from other wet laundry.
Sheepskin is a luxe winter fabric that couldn’t be better for the cold months. It’s warm to cocoon yourself with on the sofa and super soft underfoot when you choose a rug option.
How to care for luxe winter fabrics
Regular spot cleaning and hoovering will keep your luxe winter fabrics looking their best for longer. Opt for our Staingard to add another protective layer, helping to prevent any long-term damage and to prevent spills from absorbing straight into the fabric.
