Cowhide Rugs In Interior Design

It’s rare to see modern homes that aren’t accented in cowhide accessories these days. It’s a trendy way to add in a different texture, color and pattern into an otherwise smooth, streamlined home.

Cowhide is more than just an area rug - it’s now used as an upholster backs of chairs, headboards and other pieces of furniture. It presents unique opportunities to add in a taste of the wild or tame while letting us show off our inner ruggedness.

Don’t let the expensive cost of animal print rugs keep you from checking out this growing popular trend—there are plenty of fake animal skin rugs available - and we have them at Rawhide Company.

Some are even in bright colors and patterns that can be perfect accents for a playroom or child’s bedroom or teenager's room - or perhaps - a dorm room rug!  Solid color rugs make for a really hip and low-cost addition to one's first home or apartment out of college.

Black and white cowhide rugs can be a beautiful accent to leathers, rugs and other textures found in living rooms or studies.

Every man has a bit of a rugged style to him, so explore how a cowhide rug upholstered to an ottoman might help give your cowboy that “men’s club” feel.

Design Durability Matters

Durability can be a critical component when designing your home - and few things are as durable as natural cowhide rug and cowhide accessories. The thick, coarse hair makes for a layer of protection from even the grimiest dirt and funk you can find.

Here’s why you should plan with durability in mind:

Lasts Longer 10 years
down the road, will your living room need another refresh? Probably. But is it worth throwing out everything that you used before? No. Cowhide rugs last longer than most of their counterparts and can be great, fashionable and chic accents for years to come.

Endless Style

The timeless patterns, shapes and colors of the natural hide rugs and the beautifully dyed cowhide rugs are really versatile and can be used in many living environments.

More Value

Because cowhide rugs last longer - you’re guaranteed to get more life out of your investment.

A Beautiful Cowhide Headboard For Your Bed

Since cowhide rugs have been used as durable rugs and home accents throughout American history - it's no wonder that even today - a cowhide is a cost-efficient way of decorating and designing your home.

Cowhide rugs can come in a variety of patterns and styles. They, of course, come in their natural shades of brown, white and black as well as in dyed bright and fluorescent colors and patterns to add pop and zing to any room.

Their unique appearance and wide range of shapes and patterns make them great accents to all rooms, but a common overlooked addition is a beautiful headboard crafted from a chosen cowhide.

Cowhide rugs as a headboard protect your headboard from scratches and imperfections and also keep their color almost entirely throughout their life.

Cowhide headboards make a bold statement when upholstered and framed in leather. Especially in rustic or western styled homes, nail heads can be a great addition to the overall theme of your house.

Few things draw the attention in a bedroom like a beautiful headboard, so make yours the centerpiece. With the addition of a cowhide rug on your headboard you’ll open the doors for a more durable bedroom with beautiful, unique and striking accents.
