After Game of Thrones designer Michele Clapton revealed that the Night’s Watch furs were made out of IKEA rugs, we were intrigued. Which rug was it? Would we be willing to sacrifice the warmth of our bedroom floors to look like the King of the Andals? And how exactly could we achieve this look in the most authentic way possible?
Look no further, because IKEA decided to take all the guess work out of crafting your very own piece of Westeros. Simply buy a sheepskin rug, cut out a hole, and wear proudly, preferably with sword.
Of course, Clapton’s on-screen versions aren’t that easy. “We cut and we shaved them, and we added strong leather straps and then break them down…I want the audience to almost smell the costumes. Here they were waxed and frosted so that they belonged to the landscape.”
Still, consider us ready for Halloween.
