Make an Ottoman More Luxurious
Ottomans are best when they are soft and, in this case, fuzzy. This transitional piece makes a comfortable seat but would also work just fine as an end table: simply add a tray on top to place cups or accessories.
As an added style tip, notice how all the surrounding furniture is brightly colored. If you want to incorporate a white faux fur accent piece into your home, make sure all your other furnishings aren't also white. Also, don't feel like you have to have multiple pieces of faux... fur furniture in a room. One well-made piece is plenty to get the look.Continue to 5 of 16 below.

Decorate for the Holidays Using Faux Fur Baubles
The next few projects are dedicated to the holiday season. Some of them you may even get away with leaving out all winter long. This wreath is deceivingly simple and can be customized using varying widths and colors of ribbon.
