‘Our affordable sheepskin rugs have always been a huge hit with our customers, and so this season we wanted to try something a little different, by releasing two eye-catching new colours,’ explains Carol McSeveney, Textiles Sales Leader, IKEA UK & Ireland.

‘The soft pink and ink blue shades we've chosen are perfect for incorporating a splash of colour into your living space in an unexpected way.'

Sheepskin rugs are the ideal accessory to dress homes all year round, especially in winter. Wool is a clever material that regulates body temperature, ensuring you keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Due to their tactile soft texture, these rugs can help to add an extra layer of comfort for living rooms and bedrooms in an instant.

The IKEA sheepskin rugs are made using responsibly sourced wool, that's naturally soil-repellent. This simply means the rugs are more durable and will withstand water and stains, and prevent oil from ruining the fabric.

The new Millennial pink shade is a pretty new addition to the range. The soft dyed hue lends a more theatrical feel to the natural sheepskin collection. The soft pink hue is the ideal accent colour to pair with greys of all depths and on-trend brooding dark navy and black paint tones.

Pink is also a beautiful contract colour to team with green – as opposites on the colour spectrum, these two shades compliment each other perfectly.

A  sheepskin is so versatile for the modern home. They can be placed on the floor as intended, or draped over furniture to create a modern, cosy vibe. Placing sheepskins on sofas and chairs is particularly popular among Scandi decors – you know it's a stylish approach if the Scandinavians are doing it.

IKEA recommend, ‘Use 1 STOPP anti-slip underlay’ if using the sheepskin as a floor rug

IKEA say, ‘Since 2015, all leather, cowhides, sheep and goat skins at IKEA are chrome-free. Chrome can be very toxic for people in the production line and for the environment, which is why we use alternative substances.’
