I am fascinated by animal hyde rugs. They add so much warmth, texture and personality to a space. When I was a little girl, we had a bear rug (complete with head ) that my dad absolutely loved. Our bear rug hung on the brick wall of our den. As a Colorado native, this was not at all unusual.
While I realize controversy exists over their use by animal rights activists, hydes can be used with good conscience. I recently learned that a number of hydes are actually obtained humanely from animals that die of natural causes.
So go ahead; be daring and unconventional! Add some instant style by using an animal hyde rug in your space!
