Designing With Metal, Cowhide And Glass

Some might say shades of gray are 'mature' and even perhaps 'depressing' - but really, things are changing lately for 'gray' - especially in design circles - 'gray is the new chocolate', and of course, chocolate was the new black. Black of course - timeless and always in style. Translation: gray is pretty popular right now. And here's another great thing for gray - we've got beautiful gray cowhide rugs!

It's being used in all sorts of rooms - and with several accompanying colors - such as the new Pantone color of the year - Tangerine tango - and others. It's also fun to stay sort of monochromatic - using varying values of gray- to let them work together to play light and shadow in your space.

  • Pair your gray pieces with shiny metals and open windows for a modern look.
  • For a more traditional look, use rich, rustic woods in your design.
  • If you're going for shabby-chic, look for antique pieces of all colors, as long as it's properly 'aged' looking.
  • Make use of glass - for example with the coffee table - so that you can see through to the natural pattern of your cowhide rug.

2012 Interior Design Trend - Cowhide

We've always known that a good, durable cowhide rug is ALWAYS in style, but we want make sure you are in the know with 2012's hottest trends. And, as you might have guessed - we have a cow hide rug to correlate with each trend.

Color: Let's start with the Pantone Color of the Year for 2012 - Tangerine Tango. It's a bright and happy orange - and we feel our 'tomato' cowhide rug fits the bill perfectly. Use it in your design, not as design. Orange isn't for everyone, you know.

Metallics: Still the rage in 2012. We added an entirely unique metallic printed cowhide rug collection in late 2010. We've added several new hides in 2011. You might say we had the designer crystal ball.

Oversized prints: You might say the holstein cow has, since the beginning - sported the ORIGINAL oversized print (au naturale). Style and truly organic design comes with the whole 'cow' thing.

Whatever the trend - we've got a cowhide for that. :)
