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 is a cowhide rug layered on top of other rugs. And in this warm, rich cream color, what’s not to love?
Here are 3 ways to layer cowhide rugs in your home.
1. 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.
2. Mess With Perfection
Add a touch of devil-may-care to a space by stepping outside the restraints of symmetry. The fluid and organic shape of a cowhide rug, added to an otherwise precisely balanced space, says “Hey, loosen up.”
3. 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.
