Others may want a minimal rustic look that has the primitive charm of another century. Of course, there are nearly limitless choices in the decorating spectrum. If you crave the relaxing look and comfort of the outdoors, you will love decorating with genuine reindeer skin rugs.
A majority of people these days object to killing an animal just for its fur. Unlike other exotic furs, reindeer hide is a bi-product of the meat industry.
Reindeer farms slaughter the animals humanely for the meat and sell the hides. This way, nothing is wasted and humans get the full benefit of the animal.
Reindeer fur has beautiful coloration and a luxurious softness that is like none other.
It has been coveted for centuries by native peoples because of the warmth and beauty it adds. With proper care, your genuine reindeer rug will last for years and will be the center of conversation.
When we think of fur, we automatically think of cozy rugs in a country cabin setting. Reindeer fur has a thick pile and is ideal for keeping feet warm on cold, wood floors.
Each hide has unique shades of gray, silver, cream, and black. Like snowflakes, no two are ever the same. They complement the rustic charm of a cabin or any natural theme. Reindeer rugs are attractive in living rooms, family rooms, or any place that you want an eye-catching rug. These rugs are gaining in popularity around the world.
Fortunately, these gorgeous rugs are not just for primitive or rustic decor. Even the most sophisticated decor would be enhanced by a reindeer hide. They would make a lovely accent rug on a white carpet in a chic living room. The hide’s coloration and velvety texture speak style, comfort, and class. Reindeer skin rugs would even work for homes with an industrial or modern flare. The splash of natural softness is pleasing to the eye in any setting.
Reindeer hides are not stiff and scratchy like rugs made of other fibers. Once they are cured, the skin and hair are buttery-soft and as supple as a blanket. For this reason, you can use your reindeer rug as a stunning furniture throw. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised when they see a genuine hide cascading down your living room couch. Not only does it complement the aesthetics of your furniture, but is can also be used as a warm blanket on a cozy night around the fireplace. Fur throws are absolutely beautiful on couches or chairs. Since their colors are basically neutral, they will not clash with any colors or patterns on the furniture. Any room would benefit from a fur throw.
If you want more than just pictures on your wall, consider a genuine reindeer fur as a wall hanging. This natural tapestry can be the focal point in a room or it can be an accent piece. Invariably, your guests will be drawn to it and will want to touch its lush softness. It can blend in beautifully as one of your favorite eclectic pieces.
