The sheepskin trend is nothing new. From design blogs to shiny Instagram accounts to affordable Ikea options, sheepskin and faux sheepskin rugs have been gracing the internet for some time now. We get it. Sheepskin is an easy way to make your home comfy, to take a chair from drab to fab. In fact, we're really into the faux sheepskin thing.

Now, though, it seems a simple throw is not enough, and it's time to take the craze to the next level. Sentient Furniture in Brooklyn proves this.

Sentient offers a lineup of full-on sheepskin furniture. No removable aspect, no throw rugs, simply made-to-order sheepskin furniture.

At the moment, Sentient Furniture offers two sheepskin options. The first is the Long Wool Sofa, designed by Nersi Nasseri, which is made of reclaimed oak and Icelandic sheepskin wool. Described as "chaotic, wild, soft and long," the six- to eight-inch hair comes in a range of brown colors and has an inviting, warm feel.

The Joojay Armchair, also designed by Nasseri, gives this same comfy feel on a smaller scale. Described as "modern, contemporary and timeless," the chair is one half art piece, one half functional napping station. Pricing for both the chair and sofa is available upon request.

The real question, though, is will you be requesting those prices? Are you on board with the trend, or is this whole thing too much for you? Sheepskin furniture: hot or not?
