Seeing Hides: Animal skin rugs

As you'll be able to tell from the bevy of images below, this is something I've been thinking about for a while. The animal skin rug. It has become a point of much turmoil in my mind. I love it. But I hate it. I want one. But I could never own one. I am not a vegetarian, and yes, I own leather products. But there is something about having something's hide, in its natural shape and texture, strewn about to walk on every day. That being said. I see them everywhere. Looking fabulous. Kind of like lucite. In bedrooms, living rooms, entryways, dining rooms, layered over a sisal rug or paired next to an oversized, geometric rug. I love the organic shape. I want one in my office. And I keep telling my mom to get one for her living room (alas she refuses). I've searched for a faux-hide rug, but thus far, haven't had luck. I find it hard to believe they don't make them. Maybe some day...
