More of us are becoming ever more aware of our environmental footprint, and how often our pleasure is at the expense of other living creatures. It’s with this in mind that vegan awareness group and animal rights organization PETA launched its Vegan Homeware Awards 2017. The warmth and softness of down without the feathers, or a sheepskin rug without the sheepskin? Totally possible! Check out these award-winning cruelty free alternatives for a happy home.

Vegan Leather Home Office Chair

With its brass base for glamour and easy wipe down black fabric, the MADE office chair is undeniably stylish and functional.

Even better, it’s upholstered in a polyurethane material, also known as PU leather, but is completely leather (and animal) free.

Best Faux-Sheepskin Rug

Swedish furniture giant IKEA has perfected its Tejn faux-sheepskin rug so that it is both soft and cozy, and highly versatile.

Sure, it’s a rug that would look great piled up in a textured way, but we don’t have to use it only on the floor! Draped over chairs, or as a wall hanging, it’s just as fluffy as real sheepskin but without the sheep.

Vegan Cowhide Sofa

Rockett St George have this gorgeously styled two-seater sofa with mid-century modern vibes in cowhide print pattern.

Black and white print works well paired with minimal furnishings. But what about mixing it with some bright colors and patterns to really create some warmth and vibrancy in the living room?

Innovation Award

Hailing from Slovakia, designer Simon Kern has used an intriguing combination of recycled leaves and bio resin to make the Beleaf Chair prototype.

Made from nature, the idea is once it gets worn out, you can leave it under the tree and it will naturally disintegrate right back into the ground from whence it came. It’s a genius biodegradable furniture solution, like using paper or bamboo for everyday items that have been dominated by plastic for too long.

Lynx Faux-Fur Throw

Animal print is one of those trends that never really goes out of style, but that’s not so great for our furry friends.

Heal’s soft and snuggly faux fur throw mimics the look and feel of lynx fur without the price tag, or the, you know, lynx hunting.

Soy Candles

Pacifica Beauty has a huge range of soy-based candles in a myriad of scents and smells.

Best Feather-Free Cushion

From pastels and periwinkle to ultramine, blue makes a great accompanying color to many others; paired with coppers or pinged against pink. The Monsoon version does pretty without any plumage.

Silk Free Sheets

With a 300 thread count, these cotton bedsheets are soft enough without silk.

Habitat‘s Washed Sateen sheets and duvet set are available in soft pink or stone gray, or look good in a mixed medley of both.

Wool Free Cozy Blanket

Pom pom blankets are a delight! Sure they make for a cute Instagram photo, but more importantly they also provide a cozy bedspread.

This Oliver Bonas wool-free blanket is hand woven in India from acrylic and cotton fibers. The pink and gray pairs well with those sateen sheets from Habitat, too.
