An appealing alternative to the ubiquitous cowhide rug: the Yerra Cuadrado Cowhide Rug from Horne. Made from high-quality cowhides from Argentina, the rugs are constructed of one-foot-square pieces that are stitched together and backed with a thin layer of cushioning. The rugs are suprisingly easy to clean—just vacuum periodically and use soap and water for spills—and are naturally stain resistant. The Yerra Cuadrado Cowhide Rug (Holstein) is available in three sizes, prices start at $745 for the 6-by-4-foot size at Horne; they're also available in solid colors.
