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.
