Mo' Faux.

I saw this GORGEOUS faux fox throw on Laura Day Living (and thank you Laura Day for listing Hello Gorgeous as one of your favorite blogs!). I immediately went to Barney's to order it, held it in my shopping cart until the next morning and bam! It was out of stock, just like that.

I ended up ordering it directly from the company in the U.K. and while the order appeared to go through, I haven't received any other information about it and it's been about a week now. If that falls through, here's my backup:
It's from and even more affordable than usual - there's a Buy One, Get One at 50% Off sale going on right now. If you have an even better resource, please let me know.

It's images like this that send me over into the land of make-believe fur (I just can't buy a real coyote or fox product but I don't have as much of a problem buying printed cow rugs; go figure):

The super lovely home of Derrick Miller and Jennifer Vaughn Miller on Long Island from this book:

I know, I am such a hipster.

I am so with you -- I love the fur look, but I can't do the real thing. Mostly because Ike would wipe boogers all over it, but also because I find it a little icky.

And yes, I have a sheepskin rug and wear vintage fur coats. Hypocrite!

Love the one you chose. Overstock has/had some good ones, too.

I'm all for a good faux fur, both of these look especially good. I don't have a problem with leather jackets or things like that, but real fur, yeah I just can't look Alex in the eye.

I love the look of this faux fox throw. I cannot find it anywhere. You mentioned that it is made by a U.K. company? Can you provide the name/website?

Anyone know the U.K. store that makes this fox faux throw?

Yes, it's from Moore & Moore in the UK and it's about $100 less than Barney's was charging!

I also have an extra one if you can't wait for shipping. Just email me.
