What do you think of decorating with cowhide? Some people love it, animal activists hate it. I happen to LOVE it! Cowhide seems to be popping up everywhere in the home decorating world. I don't yet have anything in cowhide. I have looked at buying them several times but couldn't ever get past the price. I would love to find a small piece that I could use to cover a footstool or ottoman, or even the seat of a chair. I think it adds a touch of rustic elegance and I think it is sooooo fun when done right!
I would hardly call my decorating style Western. It is actually more Traditional, but I love a touch of flair, whimsy, and just plain unexpected, yet elegant at the same time. I once stayed at a hotel/resort in Texas called the Texas Gaylord, and it had cowhide covered bar stools in one of the bars with dark slate floors. That may have been when my love affair with cowhide started. I'm curious to know what you think about decorating with cowhide. And if any of you know where I can find it at a great price, by all means let me know!!
