Turn on just about any home decorating show, and you’ll see some mincing host droning on and on about how fabulous it is to bring the outside elements into interior design. We agree, except that nature can be heavy and full of bugs and dirt.
In lieu of pimping your place with sticks and stones like some tragic little pig, try Felt Pebbles made of 100% merino wool. They are softer, less likely to break your foot after rolling off the coffee table and not nearly as played out as that bowl full of fleur-de-lis encrusted spheres.
And you can sleep like a baby at night knowing that your felty fashion nuggets were handmade in South Africa as part of a job creation program for local craftswomen. It will help ease the guilt later when you take the Hummer for a spin to the Mega-mart to buy some growth hormone-filled chicken breasts.
Pebbles range in size from about 3” long for the small to 5” long for the large (clearly no gay man was involved in this rating metric). Prices start at $14 and they are sold individually or in sets.
