I had been wanting a cowhide rug for SO LONG. It took me a while to decide which style I should go for but I decided on the white with black spots. It arrived in record time and is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I quickly pulled away the cream colored shag rug that used to be in my living room and replaced it with the cowhide rug and it changed the whole look of my living room. It's great quality for the price - a true bargain! The cream brightens up my room. It brings together the modern and classic elements I have in my living room. I'm so so happy I got this rug. It's totally worth every penny.

I think the rug is beautiful but I am very disapointed in the size of the rug i purchased. The rug is about 4' by 5' not 5' by 7'. I understand that they will differ in size slighty but this seems to be way off and a lot smaller in size than advertised. I feel like i was sent a calf not a cow.

I took a trip to Ikea for their cowhide rug, but they only had plain black ones in stock. I didn't want a steak cow, I wanted a milk cow, dang it! After shopping around to other brick-and-mortar stores and online, I found Overstock had the second best price (after Ikea). I have to say, I absolutely love this rug! It arrived quickly, and it is a great statement piece for my living room. The idea of real cowhide made me a like squeamish at first, but I got used to it pretty quickly. My only complaint is that I wish the rug had more spots, but it's still a nice mix of black and white.
Great rug! Exact size I wanted to fit under my coffee table. I'd say my rug was about 60% white and 40% black. I have dark concrete floors so I prefer it mostly white. It shipped quick and it was very easy to iron out the creases from being folded after looking up some tutorials. So far the dogs haven't torn it to shred either! Win! Way better looking and better quality than the IKEA ones that are $50 more! I love it!
First let me say I do not condone harming animals but to the animals thats passed on I see no reason why not remember them.this rug really adds that special extra something to a room once you have one you'll definitely want another for another room. Its soft although I wanted something more white it off which soft put a little color to my black & white loft
This rug a genuine hair-on-hide rug. It came folded up in a box the size of a shoe box. I think it would take a long time to relax as the leather creased. The color was not was I was expecting either. I was hoping for variations of black and white but got almost solid black. The only white on this was a small spot on one edge. I read the measurements also, but it seemed so small when placed on my floor. I couldn't get over the fact that this rug seemed to have come from a calf, and a small one at that. It may work for someone, but not for me. I returned it. I gave it 2 stars because it is an actual piece of leather, not imitation.
I love my black/white cowhide rug, despite it having a brand mark (which, while indicative of its authenticity, can be a little off-putting). This is the one rug in my apartment that my cat doesn't claw, much to my relief, so it's able to be displayed in the living room under my gold/glass coffee table. I do get a lot of compliments, and have been told it looks better than the ones offered at IKEA, so I'm rather pleased with the purchase.
So it's actually a pretty nice rug. The color looks good and is just what I wanted. BUT, it's entirely too small. I don't think anything on the rug is 5 feet. So unfortunately I have to send it back. Very disappointed because it would be great if it was truly a 5x7 rug. I'm not sure why they don't just change the measurements in the description.
This rug would otherwise be fine if the packaging was better. To fold a leather rug to the size of a large shoe box probably isn't the smartest idea. Not only do the creases not come out but it makes the "fur" go in every direction and it can't be flattened out. Doesn't look like the picture. I thought maybe it was just mine so I had them send me a replacement and sure enough it was the same issue. I've actually never had a problem with anything I've purchased on the site. This was the first time I've received a bad product. They should really tell the manufacturer to package the product properly.
I was hoping the other reviewers were wrong but they were right. The rug I received was 99% black with a 3 inch by 2 inch white speck at one of the edge. The rug was much smaller than the description too, more like 3.5' x 5' and not 5x7. Sorely a disappointment!
