Design Trends For 2011

While checking out ALL the new design trends for 2011, I couldn’t help but notice Rawhide Company is the PERFECT place to find most of these FAB new design ideas! So - we've compiled some of these ideas here, and are passing them on to you.

2011 DESIGN TREND #1
Bold Animal Skins & Pattern
Once again, animal prints and bold designs are all the rage. We have the best selection of exotic animal print cowhides for the wild at heart! Can't decide on the pattern or print? Well - Rawhide Company can create a limitless array of patterns, shapes and designs for our custom laser cut hide area rugs!

2011 DESIGN TREND #2
Soft, pale neutral palettes
One of our naturally light-toned hides can soften any décor-by touch and sight, if you're looking to have a more relaxing, toned-down look in your space. Our Monochrome collection of solid natural colored cowhide rugs are a great place to look to create this look.

2011 DESIGN TREND #3
Small accent tables
While Rawhide Company doesn’t actually sell side tables, we do have some smaller hides to go underneath such a table, or you can buy one of our small cowhide rugs from our Value Collection and make a few lamps or frames to “accent” a table or two or you can you can just drape the hide over the table! Get crafting in 2011! Many of our clients use our cowhides in their interior accents and other craft projects.

2011 DESIGN TREND #4
Eco-friendly materials and organics
Our hides are tanned naturally, and do not pose a risk to children or animals. They are eco-friendly, because the processes they go through pollutes less during manufacturing - and cowhides are an efficient use of the animal's resources. Plus, Rawhide Company is an active participant in our local communities and gives a minimum of 5% of our profits every year to a wide variety of community and non-profit organizations—and that’s something we can all definitely feels good about!

2011 DESIGN TREND #5
Rustic or natural fibers such as linen and burlap (or RAWHIDE)
With rustic décor one would typically design with natural elements-trees, natural horn antlers, and wildlife and in many earthy colors. Cowhides are a great way to tie in the rustic style to any interior.

2011 DESIGN TREND #6
Metallics
Everyone likes a little “sparkle” and with metallic accents being a major component in design this year- one of our metallic print cowhide rug is sure to fit in to any design - and any budget. If you've got more browns and Earthy-tones, opt for the gold metallic accent rug. We've also got a bright red version - in both gold and silver.

2011 DESIGN TREND #7
AND, OF COURSE, PILLOWS, PILLOWS AND MORE PILLOWS! And make sure they're COWHIDE PILLOWS! 'Nuff said!

Whatever your taste is for the New Year, the simple luxury of natural hides in your interior decor references both our history, as well as the wide-open outdoors: the joyous variety offered by natural hides can create space or pull it together, can warm furniture or spruce up a wall, can drape a bed in climb-into-me softness or floor an office in straightforward ruggedness.
