First off, if you want a real cowhide, go buy a REAL cowhide. This is meant to share the aesthetic as best as possible. Even the best fake leather doesn't feel like real leather, that's the same case here. Now that being said it's a great imitation. I have owned real cowhide before, and having pets, I won't do it again. It's not something that can be easily cleaned. This one is also bigger than what you can find in a real cowhide. Underfoot, it is fuzzier than a real hide, but visually, it doesn't look that much different than real fur, it just stands up a little taller. For my purposes--something with a low pile height and large surface area to go under the dining table, that I can slide chairs over, that won't give me a coronary if I spill something on it because it's not $400-$500-- it's perfect. The color pretty much matches the images. It's shedding a little bit, but since it's already a small amount, I am not worried that it will last.
This rug is well worth the money. It does NOT look as fake as people have said. I mean it's artificial, so get over it. I had a real hide rug a few years ago and it was awful. It was super thin and I had to be sure I conditioned it or there would be dandruff...they are more art than functional. Not only that but if you walk in the same spot too much the (coarse & irregular) hair falls out... This rug combines the best of both worlds. The colors are perfect, greys beiges some black and ivories, very neutral. Uniform hair and easy to lightly vacuum. Finally It's nice on my feet (hides will never be PLUSH tho) and it brings a high end flair with it.
It's thin but I didn't have to put a non-slip pad, I have bought a few different colors of them for accents in areas that don't get a lot of traffic, as I don't think they would hold up too long under heavy traffic. But I'm a vegetarian & these really throw my guests off, because they look pretty authentic without close examination. I like them also because they are assymetrical & I get really bored with perfect squares and rectangles in my home décor. I used two slightly different ones in my bedroom and they really warmed it up, as well as to create a welcoming little niche in a large room without having hard 90 right angle edges. And, as usual with the stuff I'm reviewing, there's also the price factor which, if you want chic but are on a budget, these are doubly auspicious finds. But the bottom line for me is my title, The Look Without the Cruelty. It's so good to decorate without a guilty conscience.
this rug looks great, very soft on the feet. I would recommend.
for the price this is amazing. to me it looks real unless you might look really close. but i actually prefer faux over having a dead animal on my floor. i LOVE this rug.
I just got this rug and I love it. However, the size is supposed to be 6'2 x 8'0... After measuring the size is actually 6x4 so it's about 2 feet off on length and width. Not sure if they just sent the wrong one or what, but it looks like a few others have said the same thing.
This is a beautiful rug as others have stated. looks very real, beautiful coloring, nice and soft. Please note that there really is not a 8 x 10 as stated in the listing. this rug is actually a 5 x 6.5.
Beautiful contemporary rug, exactly what we were looking for! Colors are accurate to photos, charcoal grey, white, a touch of brown in certain areas. Works great in my contemporary industrial living room!

A must buy for anyone looking for a faux fur statement piece rug! Does not appear cheap looks like high-quality, true to color! Absolutely love this rug not one negative to say.
We LOVE this rug! Looks even better in real life. It was packaged really nicely upon delivery, feels nice to the touch, and adds a fun pop to our floor. We paired this rug in a large room that already had a rectangular rug, and the shape of this rug plays really well with the other rug. Highly recommended!
This graciously sized faux cowhide area rug is the perfect accent for so many styles. It currently resides in my contemporary home's foyer. It's varied shades of grey, white and tan easily disguise any wayward dirt or leaves that come in on our shoes. Use with a rug pad to keep its smooth back from sliding.
I was looking for a cow skin rug, and this was a great compromise. The coloring of it is perfect, unlike the unknown factor with a real skin. From a distance, it looks real, close up, it is nice as well. It is thin and will need a pad. It also needs to flatten out, after being rolled up on that tube.
Holy beautiful. This is definitely better looking than I expected. We put this under a white thirty six inch tulip table and four gray Scandinavian modern style chairs. This looks completely Instaworthy which maybe it should because that’s where I got my Instaration. No smell or shedding. Slight crease from shipping but is fading well. I have a toddler and I’m working on a stylish but functional home with items that won’t cause me to meltdown if things are spilled destroyed. This is relatively budget and I don’t need to maintain it like a real cowhide. Plus it is not a dead animal so that’s cool - as I wear leather shoes. :) Definitely get this if you’re on the fence. I’m super happy with purchase.
I was hesitant to purchase this rug because faux rugs often appear cheap and obviously fake. This is NOT the case here, this rug looks real and has held up to a high traffic area in my house. It's size makes it pretty much perfect for any room.
Very soft under my feet. Sits nicer and flatter than a real hide rug.
As others have said, be careful with sizing. the 3'10" x 5' is small. Not quite as tiny as those white faux shaggy hides that people seem to be throwing at the side of the bed... definitely bigger than that, but very small. I put it under my 36" square dining table and the two chairs I have with it just make it to the ends of the rug when fully pushed in under the table.
I love this rug. I knew ordering faux it would not be a replica of a real cowhide it would just offer the look with a much softer material which I preferred. The size was perfect. The delivery was early and the packaging was secured. I would def recommend.
