Ten Reasons to Decorate With Cowhide Rugs

There are many reasons for this, and in case you're wondering what they are, or why you should own one for your own home, here are just a few:

1. Stain-Resistant
Cowhide rugs are made for the outdoors. Cattle wear them year-round to protect themselves from the elements and they wash right off.

2. Hypo-Allergenic
Of all the animal skins you could own, a cow hide is the most allergen-friendly. They're tight pores do not trap dust or shed.

3. One-of-a-Kind
Just like there are no two people exactly alike, there are no two cows exactly alike. Each design is completely original and oh so chic.

4. Extremely Durable
It does not get much tougher than cow skin for wear and tear, not to mention, the ultra-short fur keeps its shape even when trampled.

5. Add Contrast
If you want to mix it up and add some unexpected contrast to a streamlined modern room, throw in a cool cowhide rug.

6. Soften Any Space
The unique lines of a cowhide rug soften a space with strong lines.

7. Look Great with Any Color Scheme
Few rugs are as versatile as this one when it comes to matching a color scheme, but you can throw it in with almost any color and it will fit right in.

8. Not Just for Floors
If you get tired of using your cowhide as a rug, you can hang it, cover a wall with it, throw it over a banister, or drape it over the back of a chair – each one an equally stunning option.

9. Fantastic Conversation Starter
Imagine the element of surprise your guests will get when they find one of these rugs in your formal dining room. Did you raise the cow? Are we eating the cow? They're always fun elements of dÊcor.

10. Naturally Warm
Just like any other animal, a cow's coat is made to keep her warm in the winter. It's self-insulated and warm on your feet. Place one by your bedside to absorb the shock of the cold on a hardwood floor in the middle of the night.

Choosing a rug that's perfect for your room can be overwhelming, but it does not have to be. The texture and color of these rugs lend the perfect detail to accent any room, and add a hint of art and eclectic style to the modern home. Another added plus, is they even work well in homes with children and pets due to their resiliant nature.
