This Animal Fur Sofa by 'Sentient Furniture' is Naturally-Sourced

This animal fur sofa by Sentient Furniture is made of Icelandic sheepskin wool. The fur of the 'Long Wool Sofa' has subtle variations in color from the natural coloring of the sheep's fur. The sofa's hairiness makes it quite rustic and even more so with a frame made up of reclaimed oak boards ranging from anywhere from 150-200 years old. The wood is full of knots and holes from nails that show off its character.

The sturdiness and rigidity of the wood planks contrasts beautifully with the softness of the long wool, although their colors compliment one another beautifully. Each sofa is made to order and since the fur and the wooden boards are naturally sourced, each piece of furniture is completely unique.
