Authentic cowhide rugs are especially popular in decor right now and homeowners love to show them off, for the unique texture and feel as well as the modern look that they offer to the style of a room.
Cowhide rugs offer an interesting approach to decorating.
There is nothing else that can draw the attention of guests into the theme or ambience of a room. A beautiful cowhide rug is a thing of beauty that can act as the centerpiece of the entire room that everything else can revolve around.
Some cowhide rugs are more traditional, with the natural colors and shades of brown, black, tan and white. Other more contemporary cowhide rugs may be color dyed to enhance the natural beauty, but give a different effect.
The care and time put into a cowhide rug shows in the end result, which is a stunning piece of art that can be displayed in any room of the home.
Master leatherworkers tan the hides by hand, making them supple, silky soft and shed-free, then have created stunning intricate patterns like stripes, patches, contemporary waves, circles, chevrons and starbursts-some resemble hardwood floors and exotic tiles.
Whatever your choice, you can be sure of one thing- a patchwork cowhide rug will last for a lifetime and give you many years of enjoyment. This is why many people consider the purchase of a cowhide rug more of an investment than an expenditure.
A cowhide rug can be both delicate and rugged at the same time, offering superior quality and elegance, both at once. Whatever your tastes are, a cowhide rug has something to offer you.
