Ski chalets, mountain cabins, slope side retreats all usually have one amenity in common--the fireplace.
Sitting in front of a fireplace is a favorite winter pastime. It's a place to gather with friends, share a glass of wine, and warm up, something that's made even more enjoyable when wrapped in a soft, warm blanket.
Gracing the backs of sofas, ottomans, and chairs in many ski chalets and mountain homes is a designer staple that has increasing risen in popularity--the faux fur throw. Available in a variety of patterns, finishes, and sizes, faux fur throws, blankets, pillows, even dog beds, are a great way to add warmth and personal style to your vacation home.
Whether you prefer chinchilla, arctic fox, brown bear, or mink, there is a faux throw out there to satisfy your animal-like style.
