Animal Rugs for Holiday Shopping

NuLoom Earth Collection in Red
On the second day of Christmas, we bring you something wild and untamed.

Need to add a bit of unpredictability to your living space? A graphic punch that perfectly accents a room? Animal inspired rug designs would certainly fit the bill. We've said it before and we'll say it again: animal print rugs are virtually uncategorized in the decor world. An animal rug works just as well amongst traditional decor as it does contemporary.

This rug from the Momeni Deco Collection in charcoal takes a familiar giraffe spot pattern to a simple color palette that appeals to a contemporary style. We like the simplicity and the 100% New Zealand wool. Just like contemporary decor, the color palette remains neutral, however, unlike contemporary decor the design is geometrically irregular, which adds to the personality of the piece and makes for a nice transition into the uniquely untamed.

With a little bit of hand-crafted leather, you can transform the dullest of spaces. The Surya Appalachian collection is a carefully constructed piece of handcrafted leather that makes a statement. A departure from the typical animal inspired patterns, perhaps, but not without its unique patterns. We love the gray and beige color palette coupled with the delicately designed mosaic.

The cowhide collection from Linon offers a wide selection of colors and patterns for the animal in all of us. Constructed of cowhides, the rugs from this collection range from 32 for 50 square feet and play well in both playful and sophisticated decor. The 100% Brazilian cowhides are hand crafted and naturally stain-resistant, but you might just find them naturally irresistible.

We can't talk animal inspired designs without going full-on zebra. NuLoom has you covered with the earth collection. Constructed of 100% hand-tufted wool, this rug is well known for the traditional zebra striped combination, but with a flair for fabulous, you can also find brown, pink, red (pictured above) and yellow. Go wild in any color.
