Rabbit Fur Throw

On this week’s Million Dollar Decorator, Martyn Lawrence Bullard went to England to shop for a “Designer Curated Sale” for online retailer Open Sky. If you haven’t heard about Open Sky, its concept is they get celebrities to pick out their favorite items, and then Open Sky sells them online for a discounted price. These are high-end items, any of which would not be available to the general public.

Today’s Save or Splurge item was not featured during Million Dollar Decorators, but since his shopping trip was, and the the throw is on the Open Sky website, you know Bullard picked it out. It is a black rabbit throw and its discounted Open Sky price is $2395. He is quoted “Pillows and throws are among the easiest ways to instantly change the feel of any room.” He is correct, but I am morally opposed to using real animal pelts. I’m sure PETA would protest, too.

Elegant Faux Fur Throw

If you want the elegant look of a fur throw, you can find cheap faux fur throws at shops like Target for under $25, but they won’t be as rich looking as this one which costs $209. Even though you can find it cheaper, sometimes you just need to invest in a higher quality product. This throw is timeless and can last for your lifetime.
