Gotta Have It… A Look For Less

Ahhh, Scandinavian style.

Nothing makes me feel more giddy than light wood, fur, and killer design.

So when I saw this little beauty over at West Elm, I couldn’t help but pause…and then fall in love.

Well, maybe, more like fell in lust.

Like, the i-need-to-have-this-RIGHT-NOW kind of feeling (…don’t pretend you have no idea what I’m talking about).

How awesome is this fur and leather sling chair?  EXTREMELY.  AWESOME.

The problem is that I absolutely refuse to invest $900 on a chair when I know Hurricane Ellis lurks around every corner.  (It’s hurricane season in the Carson home for, like, the next 3 years of my life….)

And now, my beloved chair is actually no longer available in this incarnation.  It’s only available minus the fur. (Bummer.  But it makes me feel a teensy bit good that no one else can enjoy it either.),

So now my need to recreate the look has become even more of a quest.

I tapped into the first low cost, resource of Scandinavian design that popped into my head – IKEA, of course.

And I wasn’t disappointed.

Here’s what I came up with…

The Ikea Trendig 2013 Armchair (which also comes in white and red – which could be really fun)

Price: $89

The Rens Sheepskin rug, which, being a little bit larger, might be well suited to cover the entire seat. (There is also the smaller Tejn Faux Sheepskin which could work, too.  It’s only $10)

Price: $29

I know it’s not an exact match (…just waiting for the Trendig to come in a bleached wood), but I really like the idea.  And for just over $100, I feel like it’s a no brainer.  I’m trying to see if I can fit it as an accent chair in my bedroom…  We’ll see how R feels about that.

What do you think about this look?

  1. It’s not an exact match but it’s awesome and might even look better 😉
