Do you love them? Do you hate them?
I'm personally in the LOVE category. They add so much interest to a room, and are so soft. When you actually think about what you are doing - putting the skin of a dead animal on your floor - it's a bit creepy, I'll admit. But I wear leather on my feet and put meat in my mouth, so it doesn't bother me. I can definitely imagine a cowhide in our home someday.

I personally love the cowhides at World Market:
IKEA is a good place to get them as well:
I would really love a cowhide in my new office, but my decorating budget is currently being concentrated on reupholstering Craigslist stuff so we can get some furniture into this house :) But maybe someday!
