Cowhide Rugs Still Popular In Interior Design
With the steady rise in the housing market these hides have become a diverse product that is being used as art to decorate the interior of homes across the globe. At first some people might find it odd that a cow skin is being displayed on the floor or on the wall but they will soon discover that there is more to these rugs than they can imagine.
Cowhide rugs are made from cured cow skin with the hair still on to show the natural beauty of the fur. Each hide will have it’s own size and shape that will vary from rug to rug. No two hides are exactly the same giving you a one-of-a-kind product. Versatility is a big selling point on this product as there are different options to choose from such as: acid washed, natural or stenciled patterns. This can help create a trendy design for any home interior that is like nothing else and can complete a setting.
Cowhide rugs are unique and beautiful but also are low maintenance and offer a nice level of durability. They can last for years and can stand the test of children. Not only does the durability guarantee they will be on the floor for years they are also trendy and fashionable. No need to worry about allergy related issues with each rug being hypoallergenic.
Much like fine art, no two cowhides are alike. If you were to purchase a rug, you can rest assure that you are the only one that owns that rug. Being the only person that owns that specific hide is a bragging right and adds a level of luxury to any home. Since it is natural and one-of-a-kind it they should be considered “art decor” rather than just a rug. Throughout history owning an animal hide was a sign of superiority and wealth. Although these rugs are still considered a luxury, with competitive pricing they are readily available to anybody no matter their income or social status.
The luxury that you find in these rugs will change the entire look and feel of any home.

Maintaining the rugs are easy as you can vacuum them as needed, no harsh chemicals or solutions should be used. For pesky dust balls feel free to use a brush to brush them out and finish with a quick vacuum.
