Cowhide Rug by Art Hide

Can I Put Furniture on a Cowhide Rug?

A cowhide rug is the perfect décor addition to any room in your house. Our range of authentic and sustainable cowhide rugs add a touch of style to any room. However, don’t limit yourself to finding an empty floor spot to put the rug, consider placing it underneath furniture in a functional, stylish way.

Furniture Items to Put on Top of a Cowhide Rug

Cowhide rugs can look great under various pieces of furniture, helping to both frame and soften your space. Also, because cowhide is thin (typically just a few millimetres or less than ⅛ of an inch) it enables furniture to sit perfectly flat beneath it. In rooms with hardwood floors, you may also be looking to keep your furniture items on a soft surface.

A coffee table

A large solid coffee table can leave a room looking bare. Place your cowhide rug under the coffee table to create an eye-catching centrepiece to your room and a soft surface for building puzzles or sitting down for a cup.

Your dining table

If space is an issue, underneath the dining table is the perfect place to add your creative flair to the room. In addition, because cowhide doesn’t stain and spills and crumbs simply sit on the surface, it is the perfect under table rug option!

The bed

Avoid stepping onto a cold surface with your bare feet first thing on a winter’s morning! A cowhide rug will provide that soft, natural feel when you wake up while also adding a stylish touch to your bedroom.

Tips When Placing a Cowhide Rug on Furniture Items

  • Place the whole furniture item on top of the rug, with only subtle overruns exposed.
  • Place the furniture half on, half off the rug, showing some more skin to become a stronger focal point in the room.
  • When placed underneath chairs, position your new rug in a way that the edges of the chairs aren’t going to hook or catch on the perimeter of the rug.
  • Wooden furniture is a terrific choice when combined with traditional cowhide rugs. Depending on your floor, you can either consider lighter or darker woods, and then combine these with a tri-coloured cowhide rug.

The irregular shape of cowhide rugs offers creative ways to play around as floor coverings. However, Art Hide offers a wide range of shapes, including round, oval, hexagonal, runner, rectangle and square!

They can differentiate spaces, tie different types of furniture together or create a bold statement in a room. You'll never run out of options when you select a gorgeous Art Hide cowhide rug.
