The World’s Best Natural Area Rug

210x248Finding the perfect area rug can be tough. Picking something that is durable, long-lasting and hypoallergenic can be even more of a challenge. Fortunately, a cowhide rug meets all of these demands and can be found in a wide range of prices to fit almost any budget. Cowhide rugs can transform a bare hardwood floor to shabby chic or add a warm rustic touch to stained concrete flooring.

Because cow skin is so hardy, it can stand up to wear and tear even in high traffic areas. Cowhide rugs are also fairly easy to maintain. Spills are easily wiped up with a damp sponge, and removing the cow skin outside for a regular shake will remove any accumulation of dust that has settled or been tracked in. Due to the low profile of a cow hide rug, it will not collect as many allergens as a typical shag area rug. There is also not the concern of synthetic materials and chemical treatments that come along with an area rug from a big box home store. Many are treated with natural oils in the tanning process, and are natural in and of themselves, eliminating the worry of toxins being transmitted to small children and pets in the household. They do not shed or possess the awful plastic smell of many man-made rugs.

Cowhide rugs work with a wide range of home decor styles, and can also be used as a wall tapestry or warm throw for a sofa or an easy chair. If you are a devout follower of any popular home decor websites, you surely have seen a cowhide rug used creatively in many spaces from under a dining room table to a sleek home office. The use of cow skin rugs has spanned many decades for good reason. Whether you have a cozy cottage with feminine flair or an industrial loft, a cow skin rug adds just the right touch of luxe and sumptuousness to your space. Besides calling your guests attention to your chic sense of style, no one will complain about the lovely smell of naturally tanned leather. They add instant character and no two are exactly alike, making the process of picking one out a truly personal experience. Due to their popularity, cowhide rugs are available in a plethora of different color combinations and patterns, the most popular being brown and white. Also, with a relatively neutral palate, they compliment even the wildest color palette in a room. A cowhide rug is a timeless and worthwhile investment for your home.
