Ever since I posted my little, Man Mood Board, for my boyfriend’s imaginary man cave, I have been day dreaming about a cowhide rug… Especially after seeing all those beautiful pieces at Brimfield.
But then a few problems pop up.
1. I have a guilty conscious about having something on the floor – which used to be alive.
2. I think Bruin would love it – she always rolls around when there are feather pillows – but I would be nervous if there were any puppy accidents on it – how does one even clean animal skin?
3. They are kinda expensive!
4. I might be allergic? My sister and I are allergic to everything.
So I have been seeking (in the title, get it?) for a cowhide alternative. Unfortunately a lot of ‘faux Cowhide’ look like this:
Which would be cute for a kid’s room…maybe. But I envision the rug sprawled out on my living room floor… like this little mock up I created in photoshop of my living room. (Still have to put in the new coffee table!)
A nice mocha/cream/black mixed piece would be beautiful! Pretty snazzy right? I was starting to get a little discouraged because I couldn’t find anything that I liked! But then this blog popped up: View Along the Way which linked to an overstock webpage that – had faux cowhide rugs! VICTORY!
And the price isn’t too bad – I don’t mind paying a little extra to not feel guilty! Acrylic all the way baby! Its definitely something I’ll have to wait to purchase. I have a family vacation coming up soon, gotta save those bills for the Christmas Tree Shop in Hyannis! ; )
