A cowhide Ottoman may sound a little too "fussy" for you, but it is actually one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture that you can invest in. The reasons that cowhide makes such a great choice are many. Not only do you get to choose between a variety of colors and styles, but you also have the option of matching it with various types of upholstery, as well as having the sofa or bed in various heights. All of these options make cowhide a great choice for any room in your home.
The name "cowhide" comes from the Latin word for cow, which is "castor." Today, the term describes the leather found on the hide of animals. While the term may have originally been used to refer to cowhide, it has since come to mean anything resembling this animal, including a bed, chair, sofa, etc.
The fact that this material is used for virtually everything these days probably explains why cowhide is such a popular choice. It is extremely comfortable and durable, which makes it ideal for use in your home. The reason for this is that the cut of the hide allows for a lot more flexibility than most other materials for furniture. For example, when a person has to sit in a chair for long periods of time, the natural tendency is to rock back and forth. This rolling motion causes stress on the muscles and tendons in the body, which result in aches and pains.
With a cowhide sofa or bed, you can simply raise the back of the chair and rest the back against the cushions. This will provide a much more relaxing position for the person than conventional sofas or beds. Another benefit of the natural flexibility cowhide allows is that it adds a nice degree of insulation to the room. Some people compare the feel of a leather couch with sleeping on an ice pack. Either way, the extra warmth given off by cowhide is well worth the cost of the product.
Many cowhide items are also dyed in rich colors to add even more visual appeal. Many of the natural colored cows in the world are dehorned and thus lose their natural brown color. This colorless variety is known as "real leather", and is the most expensive variety available. There are many different manufacturers of high quality cowhide furniture. Some of the more popular ones include Bistro MD, Comfortex, and Sealy.
For a more casual piece of furniture, a simple cowhide coffee table can look stunningly beautiful next to a leather sofa. The black leather furniture looks beautiful in neutral colors but can really draw the eye of a fashion-forward person who wants something a bit more stylish. The addition of a few accent pillows in various colors, such as red, blue, yellow, or pink will bring out the table's natural beauty. A leather sofa can really tie a room together if you choose the right combination of colors and styles. This type of furniture is usually available in a wide range of prices, so you can easily afford it.
One of the nicest features about a cowhide sofa is that it is naturally warm, especially in the winter. Because it is usually made from cowhide, it is naturally very soft and warm, while still durable and strong. A suede cowhide sofa will tend to be a little bit cooler, but both kinds will do nicely in moderate temperatures. They will also resist stains better than some other types of leather furniture. Most cowhide tables are covered in a suede, velvet, or a cotton lining.
Adding a few accent pillows with buckles will make your cowhide coffee table Ottoman pop. If you buy one from an online retailer that sells accessories for home interiors, you can also find additional embellishments like glass beads or buckles. You can buy a coffee table in any color, though black is most popular because it goes with almost any decor. And because cowhide is so timeless, you will love how it looks for years to come.
