Love it, hate it, or not sure what to make of it – the cowhide rug trend has proven itself to be enduringly popular.
We are among the lovers. We love it on its own, but we really love it layered over other rugs. And in this warm, rich cream color, what’s not to love?
Here are 3 ways we love to use it as a layer in Modsy customer spaces.
Escape from the norm: Let’s face it, design options in a typical bedroom can be pretty limited. Rectangles abound – room shape, bed, rug, dresser, bench – everything except maybe the bedside lamp! But place a curvy cowhide rug so it spills toward one corner, and all those straight lines are instantly relaxed, just like a bedroom should be.
Mess with perfection: Add a touch of devil-may-care to a space by stepping outside the restraints of symmetry. The liquidy shape of a cowhide rug, added to an otherwise precisely balanced space, says “Hey, loosen up.”
Extend your reach: Take advantage of every square foot of your space by using a cowhide rug to reach areas where traditionally shaped rugs don’t work. In this living room, this layering trick creates a connection between the two seating areas making the space feel larger and less choppy.
Holy Cow! More hide rugs!
