Five interiors with furry walls that can be touched

Five interiors with furry walls that can be touched

Faux fur has been liberated from the fashion world and is used to cover entire walls in this book that brings together five interior projects including an igloo-shaped children’s room and a surreal Prada designed by AMO.

Furry textiles, offered in eye-catching colours, are increasingly being used by interior designers to make retail environments more inviting, as seen below in the all-pink makeover of the Balenciaga store in London and the monochromatic gray fit-out of Chinese womenswear boutique SND.

But in colder climates — like the ski town of Aspen — faux fur can also serve a practical purpose by providing some much-needed comfort.

Read on for five examples of interiors that use these unconventional materials on an architectural scale.

This is the latest in our lookbook series, providing visual inspiration from the Dezeen archives. For more inspiration, check out our previous design brochures featuring subway-tiled bathrooms, checkerboard floors, and rustic Italian interiors.

Cozy Alpine touches combine with mid-century Italian charm inside this café completed by designer Giampiero Tagliaferri in the ski town of Aspen.

Here, the walls are paneled in alternating walnut wood, deep green Verde Alpi marble, and faux fur designed to resemble shaggy Mongolian lamb’s wool.

Mount Street store, UK, by Balenciaga

Every surface inside Balenciaga’s London store — from the walls and floors to the columns and shelves — was wrapped in a bright pink furry fabric as part of a temporary installation last April.

This intervention is designed to celebrate the brand’s iconic Le Cagole bag and its maximalist spirit, while repurposing materials used now in future projects.

“We are currently looking at the best way we can donate the faux fur, so that it can be reused to make toys for example,” Balenciaga told Dezeen.

This winter-themed bedroom belongs to the young daughter of Spanish designers Mireia Lozaraga and Alejandro Moino, and is topped with a 3.5-metre-high dome designed to resemble an igloo.

Fuzzy white carpet covers almost every inch of the space creating the impression that the all-white interior is covered in a blanket of snow.

For Prada’s Fall/Winter 2021 menswear show, research studio AMO created a series of four geometric rooms designed to create “the illusion of a never-ending road.”

Each room mirrors the physical arrangements of the room before it, with white marble walls and fluffy sky-blue carpeting giving way to gleaming stone floors and furry walls in a moody purple.

SND Boutique, China, by various partners

In the absence of colour, Chinese studio Various Associates relied on contrasting textures and heavily angled walls to provide aesthetic interest inside this women’s clothing store in Chongqing, China.

The interior design combines fur-trimmed changing room cubbies and full-height mirrors to make the store feel more “glamorous and visually spacious.”
