Area rugs are some of the most important pieces of decor. They help define a space, bring warmth to it, and add character. Animal hide rugs take it a step further by bringing even more charm to a space with pattern, shape, and texture. As an animal lover, I prefer faux animal hide rugs to real ones. There are plenty on the market that look and feel like the real thing without harming any animals in the process.
These rugs come in a variety of styles and colors that make them great for just about any home. They also work in a variety of spaces, from making a stylish first impression in an entryway to warming up a bedroom. One of my favorite looks is to layer an animal hide rug over another area rug. It instantly makes the space look more dynamic. This works particularly well in a living room or bedroom.
Here are 10 examples of rooms with animal hide rugs to give you some ideas and inspiration.
