Maybe it is still that little bit of Texas I can't get out of my blood but lately I've been loving anything and everything cowhide. Since the first half of the 20th century, cowhide rugs have been a classic element for any chic home. With the variety of colors and finishes available on the market, most everyone can find a hide to fit their style.
I think hair-on-hide rugs are the perfect solution when you have a small space or a large beautiful solid surface floor which need a little warming up but you don't want to cover too much real estate. Use them in a grand master bath, at the corner of a king size bed, or to ground a little seating vignette.
If a rug shaped like the animal it use to be isn't your thing but you still want to add a little hair-on-hide in your home, try upholstering a vintage piece in cowhide:
