We finally decided on a new rug for under the coffee table. I have always loved a cowhide rug mixed into a modern room. I had a hard time convincing my wife but she finally gave in. My 3 year old said “our cow needs a name” she decided it would be DAVE. Surprisingly it is very soft and my wife even said “it is gorgeous” It finally arrived, so here it is!  Here are some other examples of cowhide rugs in modern settings.

    I’ve never heard of a cow hide rug, but these pictures are very cool.

    Love that it has a name!

    I really do like those rugs. I just would not show PETA.

    That’s funny that you mentioned that Jan. Tyler has wanted one FOREVER and I’ve kept putting him off becuase I totally had issues with it being “sick and wrong” for so many reasons….and now look……here I am…..loving it! (shhhh, don’t tell your NO FUR friends)

    I think it looks amazing, great choice Tyler.

    I think cowhide rugs and leather products make a lot of sense. We kill cows for food, and we should use skin for other purposes. Why should it go to waste? My aunt had a white and black rug. Her living room was modern and it looked really good. I never considered cowhide rugs for myself, but now even potterybarn has them.
