      Option: Grey 6'2 x 8'

      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.

    • Awesome rug! Brown/ivory/grey

      Option: Grey 6'2 x 8'

      This rug is fantastic! My main priorities in buying a hide/synthetic rug were color and quality - it's great on both fronts. On color, I've attached some photos here, which are pretty accurate. It's mostly dark brown and ivory. Also has some medium grey spots, which are perfect because my couch is grey. Looks awesome on wood floors. It's also high quality even if synthetic and still looks fairly real. I have a real hide rug and like this one just as much. Price is very reasonable. I highly recommend buying this rug and I could not be happier with it. Hope this review helps.

    • Super soft

      Option: Grey 6'2 x 8'

      This rug is the perfect color and size for my living room. The color variation is very true to the color pictured in the room. Charcoal, light greys and soft white are blended softly together to compliment wood floors and most neutral room colors. It is very soft and easy to vacuum. It does not shed and stays in place pretty well without a slip mat (though you may want to use one once you see the rug in place) It is definitely a statement piece for any room and adds a lot of character in my space. I would highly recommend!

    • Great Cowhide Alternative
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Grey 6'2 x 8'

      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.

      Love the look of this Faux Cowhide Grey/ Charcoal Brown Area Rug - 3'10 x 5'. It is being used under a dinette set and matches perfectly. Would recommend.

      This rug is absolutely fantastic and ties my living room together perfectly. I was originally going to buy one of the smaller versions of this rug, but ended up getting the 6'2 x 8 and I'm really glad. I love how the rug is primarily ivory, gray and charcoal, but has minor hints of chestnut, which compliments my floors beautifully as the ebony wood has dark brown undertones when the sunlight hits it. It also goes perfectly with my faux fur pillows (which are said to be gray, but have a brownish hue). The quality of the rug is exceptional and looks more expensive than it is. The rug is thin and manageable, yet heavy enough so that it doesn't slide around. So far, I have not experienced much shedding, which is a pleasant and welcomed surprise. The only reason I am giving the rug 4 stars instead of 5 is because I am having a difficult time getting it to lay perfectly flat. I suppose I will have to wait and see if this issue will correct itself over time, but even if it doesn't, I don't feel as though the non-flat areas pose a tripping hazard and my robovac has been able to maneuver over those areas (although I did have to help it out a few times because it flipped up one of the corners). Overall, I personally think it is a beautiful rug and highly recommend it.

      The Faux Cowhide rug is true to size and the grey / charcoal brown colors in the rug are truly complementary to each other. The rug is very durable and well made. You only realize it's not real cowhide when you actually feel the rug.

      Option: Grey 6'2 x 8'

      I really wanted a cowhide rug for my office. I was having too much of a moral dilemma buying real cowhide, so I started looking for synthetic. I looked on multiple sites and read hundreds of reviews. The previous reviews sold me on this one! In person, it doesn't look or feel cheap, which was my biggest concern with synthetic. It has the style I was looking for and didn't come with the price tag or guilt of real cowhide. I definitely recommend!

    • Don't Love it, but Don't Haite it
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Grey 3'10 x 5'

      It's actually really nice in pictures. It's obviously not cowhide to the touch and when you look up close, but I had no idea that it would actually feel like a regular rug. The print of the rawhide is just a little bit too "placed" which makes it look cheap up close. But from far away it creates a nice atmosphere/look and ambience and did what I wanted it to do in the room. I'm glad I didn't get the 5X7 or the 8X10 as this faux rug does well in small doses as it DOES look fake, even from far away. For $** I really can't complain, so I would recommend getting it if you a have little sitting area. Below is a picture of it in my music room which would probably look even better if there was other decor on the walls to distract from the fakeness of the rug.

    • Love this rug!

      Option: Grey 6'2 x 8'

      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.

      This is a pretty rug, but very poor quality. It feels like a piece of poster paper with fur stuck to it. I sent it back even though I liked the look. It would not lay flat on the floor also. Could not keep.

      I really like the rug. It is thin so it is ideal for layering as well as going over carpeted floors. It is true to photo color, but in incandescent lighting it’s a tiny bit more brown

      Read more Read less
    • Q:

      "It’s more brown or black looks?"

      • A:

        The charcoal color is a mix of grey, black, and dark brown. If you are looking for a truly black and white rug, this will not be the best choice due to the warmer tones within the dark areas.

    • Q:

      "Is this rug machine-washable? Thanks!"

      • A:

        This is not machine washable. Best cleaning practices are to clean spills immediately by blotting with a clean sponge or cloth. Professional cleaning recommended. Rug pad recommended for use on hard floor. For vacuuming, use a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar or one where you can set the bar to the highest pile setting. If your vacuum has variable power settings, set on low. Vacuum full length of the rug, turn and repeat to the next area, rather than back and forth motion.

    • Q:

      "Is it a real cowhide?"

      • A:

        No, it's synthetic faux-cowhide.

    • Q:

      "Can this rug be vacuumed? How do you care for it?"

      • A:

        I vacuum it regularly and have used spot remover on some minor spots..

    • Q:

      "Please tell me exact colors in this rug Is white pure white and is dark black or brown? Is there any gray on it?"

      • A:

        The only colors on this rug are white, black, and gray. No browns. I have two rawhide rugs from Overstock: this one and another that is mostly brown and white, and they look very different in terms of color. I actually think the rug looks exactly as the posted pictures. I hope this helps!

      • A:

        My one is same as Nina . The only colors on this rug are white, black and gray. No brown.

      • A:

        This rug is ivory and charcoal. The ivory is clean, but not a pure white. The charcoal is a mix of light greys and darker greys. Some of the darkest greys have a brownish tone. There is not a true black. This rug incorporates these detailed color mixes to resemble the look of real hide.

      Read more Read less
    • Q:

      "Can you vacuum this rug without damaging it?"

      • A:

        We have labrador that sheds like an old christmas tree and i vacuum the rug with our dyson and its been completely fine, just make sure the ends don't get sucked in, otherwise you're fine!

      • A:

        With any rug, vacuum with care in the direction the fibers lay to prolong the life of the rug. For this rug, best practice is to use a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar or one where you can set the bar to the highest pile setting. If your vacuum has variable power settings, set on low. Vacuum full length of the rug, turn and repeat. Avoid going in a quick back and forth motion.
