falling for cozy textures

Of all the seasons, fall is the sneakiest. One day, you’re outside in a tank top and shorts, the next day you find yourself reaching for that cable knit sweater. You can try to fight it, but the geese flying overhead say otherwise. It's time to pack up the patio cushions and take this party indoors.

Taking our own advice, we’re celebrating autumn in style with these stylish and comfy picks from our collection. Grab that pumpkin spice beverage of choice (iced, if you must) and get inspired!

Velvet: Piles of Style

Is it safe to say we have a crush on velvet? It can instantly elevate your look, feels amazing to sit on, and is easier to care for than you might think. To keep your velvet furniture looking its best, keep it out of direct sunlight, vacuum it frequently using a soft brush attachment, and gently spot clean spills as soon as they happen.

In the words of Chandler Bing, could this retro swivel chair BE any more fall? Orange velvet and chrome legs give this throwback style an updated autumn vibe but, don't worry, it will look just as fresh come spring.

Velvet and jacquard accent pillows give this roll arm sofa another layer of inviting, touchable texture. The traditional silhouette is softened by its ultra-soft, high-pile chenille upholstery—another cozy fall favourite.

Leave it to velvet to soften even the sleekest of chairs. With solid acrylic arms and chunky metal bolts, this modern accent chair is deceptively comfortable, thanks to its plush velvet cushions and arm rests.

Leather: We Just Can’t Hide It

Don’t let the haters tell you leather furniture is too cold for fall and winter or too hot for summer. Breathable and adaptable, leather upholstery will warm up just to your body temperature in less than 15 seconds. The perfect material for homes with pets and/or allergies, leather requires minimal care to keep it looking great for years. In fact, with annual conditioning, you can expect your leather furniture to last up to four-times longer than fabric.

The perfect chair for a reading nook or den, Huxley’s wide arms and overstuffed cushion back will give you hours of comfortable, supported reading time. Just add a cuddly toss cushion, reading light, and a good book.

This modern, Canadian-made chaise sectional is available in myriad upholstery choices, but we love it in soft, sumptuous leather. Can’t you just picture yourself snuggled up against its stylish curved arm, wrapped in a toasty throw?

Get the rich look of leather for less with this versatile accent bench in tufted faux-leather. Place it at the end of the bed, in the foyer, or in the dining room to seat two extra guests.

Faux Fur: Take a Walk on the Wild Side

What’s the quickest way to cozy up for fall? Add a faux-fur throw to your sofa or armchair, or across the foot of your bed. If a full throw is too much for you, one or two furry toss cushions will give your room a similar, snuggly effect.

Whether it’s in the bedroom or den, this imported faux fur throw in varying shades of brown throw injects instant luxury into your space. Keep it close at hand to keep you toasty warm during impromptu naps and Netflix binges.

With all the warmth and texture of fur, the super-soft Milton throw will be your first autumn accessory out of storage as soon as the leaves start to turn. At a generous 50” x 60” this irresistible faux fur blanket is big enough to share.

Take your sofa or bed styling to the next level with an assortment of accent pillows, including one or more in indulgent faux fur. Depending on the type of fur you choose, your look can be elegant, modern, or just plain fun.

Woven: The Fringe Festival

Handwoven, fringed accessories add tons of personality and texture to your space and, although seasonless, make a great jumping-off point for autumnal decorating. Start with a neutral base then add pops of colour with leaves, seasonal fruits and veggies, and warm-toned ceramics and wood. Don’t forget touches of bronze-rubbed or rusted metal to complete the look.

Every room should have a touch of black, and a fall room is no exception. This cozy fringed pillow is accented with semi-matte sequins that pick up the light just so. Create a tablescape nearby with a set of vintage-inspired apple and pear sculptures with bronze-tone stems.  

Rich with pattern and texture, this handwoven, wool-blend area rug is soft and warm underfoot. To keep it looking neat, brush the fringe with a soft bristle brush from time-to-time and avoid using your vacuums beater brush over the loose ends.

We’ve said it before—you can never have too many pillows. The fringed Liviah accent pillow gives off an easy-going natural vibe that is echoed by the deeply-textured Adelphie pouf. Keep a couple poufs in your living room or den for casual seating or a comfy place to rest your feet.
