I was a little leery because of some of the reviews and because the photo didn't look quite like the color I needed for my room, and I'd been leanig toward the sold-out brown color. However, I am glad I paid more attention to the better reviews, and those which described the color more accurately. (They really need some better photos, maybe with the rug in a room.) It really is more of a dark grayish brown than a true charcoal, and the way that the colored fibers are mixed lends to the authentic look of the rug. It is a little glossy, which I suppose can look "fake," if you're familiar with the look of real rawhides, but it doesn't bother me. And it is so soft underfoot! (My dog seems to love sleeping on it.) My style is generally modern, and this fits in really well. It's fun, chic, and a little earthy. And much cheaper than I have seen this same rug elsewhere online. I feel like it's the new centerpiece of my living room.
BTW, I did not need a rug pad, but my (wood) floors don't have a varnished finish. A slicker floor might. Try the rug first.
I am very happy with this purchase. I wanted something that looked like cowhide because I wanted an irregular rug, but I'm vegetarian so I didn't want to buy a real cowhide. It looks just like a cowhide, but clearly it does not have the same texture as cowhide because it is fake fur. Overstock is also much cheaper than the same product on several other sites. It is soft and nice, and my dog loves it too.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good - it is dark brown and white and taupe
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
Very nice rug. Obviously not an authentic cowhide but a very good simulation. Looks very "real" and seems to be good quality. I bought this one and the brown one as well. I would recommend this one over the other as it seems to be more realistic.
I bought this rug to add a little color to my living room. They had the same one at the Z gallery for twice as much. I'm very pleased with the color. thinking of buying another one for the bedroom! Thank you Overstock!
The rug is def. more brown than gray. That was fine with me as unread other reviews on here and it was pointed out. Overall I'm happy with the rug, it's cute and its a fun conversation piece. I purchased faux as my sweet dog decided our real cowhide was bathroom worthy (he's well trained as well). It's common for dogs to do that with real hide rugs. This one... He could care less about. It's a win win. Great rug!
I'm pretty thrilled with this purchase. I really wanted a rug for my room that would function as a statement piece and also as something different from the many standard printed rugs out there. Never in my life would I have thought I would want a cowhide rug, but once I got the idea in my head I couldn't let it go. As a long time vegetarian I was searching for a faux version and nearly every option I found was a black and white one that looked so dreadfully fake that it would only be appropriate in a child's bedroom or in a tacky themed restaurant (and even then would still be questionable). This one was the most realistic looking, reasonably priced and had great reviews, so I went for it.
Other reviewers are right: it is not a true charcoal / white mix, but more of a dark brown / taupe / grey combination. But I knew that going in so it worked out well for me. If you want a true black and white / charcoal and white rug, this is not for you. It's definitely noticeably different from a real cowhide as far as texture and overall appearance, but not necessarily in a bad way. I love the softer look from the fake fur and I think it looks much nicer and has more volume than a true cowhide. It's very soft underfoot and is the best alternative to a real cowhide rug out there currently. I've gotten tons of compliments on it and it seems very durable. It's a very chic, bohemian piece when used properly. Shipping was a breeze.
I ordered this to perk up the space in front of a sofa. My husband said he didn't want a dead animal on our floor. I explained that the rug is a "faux" animal skin. He withheld his judgment until the rug was in place and now loves how it has made that area a focal point. We are very happy with this purchase.
Does the rug appear more brown or grey in person? The reviews are a bit confusing. Thank you.claire99 on Apr 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
