I’ve always liked the look of layered rugs and had been thinking of adding another one to our master bedroom ever since we moved the faux cowhide we bought for our last house upstairs to the boys’ room. Once I decided on another hide rug, I had waffled back and forth on whether I wanted to go with the real deal or not. But, when my friends at Lulu & Georgia offered to help me out with a new rug for our master bedroom update, I decided to go with their blackout cowhide rug.
After now owning both a real and a fake, I can tell you there’s no comparison in the texture. It definitely feels like a little luxury for our room. The blackout cowhide has a beautiful sheen and is super soft. Everyone here agrees:
I know people usually have pretty strong opinions on whether they do or don’t like using hide rugs. To me, I feel like they often add a little something unexpected and keep a room from looking too fussy. And, I love how the black adds some much needed contrast to the lighter bedding, walls and curtains:
What do you think of using hide rugs? Friend or faux? ;)
