eclectic style: animal hyde rugs

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!
