One of the hottest and timeless trends in home decor is anything cowhide. Inspired by the great American West, cowhide is a durable and attractive material. Cowhide home decor ranges from throw rugs, blankets, ottomans, stools, and various styles of chairs. Many people find cowhide desirable, not only because it is easy to clean and has longevity, but each pattern is unique unto itself. A comfy cowhide lounge chair is the perfect place to relax with a book in a nook. Oversize accent chairs featuring cowhide make excellent conversation pieces over cocktails or a meal shared with friends and family.

Saddle up, take a seat in a cowhide accent chair, and you'll soon understand the difference that natural hide makes regarding comfort and malleability. Cowhide furniture taps into primitive energy, retains the character of the animal from which it was harvested and offers texture and visual interest.
Surprisingly, cowhide accent chairs do complement most rooms in a home, whether you decorate with an eclectic bohemian style, enjoy an industrial or minimalist approach, or like classic style. A cowhide chair might not be the right touch for everyone's taste, but it is worth exploring.
People love their cowhide chair because it ages well over time, requires minimum maintenance, and offers supreme comfort. You should be prepared to spend more money on an accent chair made using natural cowhide with hairs, versus a more inexpensive faux cowhide chair. Faux cowhide is no substitute for natural cowhide. Still, anyone who desires to stick to a modest budget, or has lifestyle concerns like Ahimsa or veganism may be happier with a faux option. Faux cowhide may require a slightly different maintenance approach when cleaning, but it is best to follow the suggested care instructions based on the material.

Explore how a cowhide accent chair may best complement your home decor, improve the look and feel of your home, and become a treasured piece of furniture in your collection.
