Give your interior a luxurious update with this bull-skin carpet designed by Pols Potten. Made out of leather, this floor cover will bring an edgy touch to your living room and make your floor a comfortable alternative to the couch. €554

Not long ago, people kept themselves warm by wearing sheepskins. With the sheep theme in mind, designer Jolanda van Goor used the woolly mammals as inspiration, but in a more animalfriendly way. She created a chair modeled after the shape of a sheep, made out of sustainable ash wood and roving. Its shape creates a different dimension of sitting. €1,095


Who says tea lights are only for the holidays? They can brighten up the darkest room in the house or be used as table decorations during dinner parties. Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek has created a luxurious version of the all-time favourite winter decoration. It is a nice lavish touch to warm you up during the many hours spent inside this season.
