This is a real cow hide from Argentina, which was purchased from New South Wales Leather in Waterloo in Sydney.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Paint it Black
For a bit of a reversal, why not white walls and black built-ins?
Margaret Everton added this to Beautiful Modern Home Libraries
You can't go wrong with black and white. These strong silhouettes stand out against this simple and classic color choice. More: Create Page-Turning Design With Books
Natalie Myers added this to 12 Ways to Rethink the Ladder
Here's a very sleek black-on-black ladder and bookshelves. The black furniture with white walls and floor complete this urban minimalist look. Quite racy.
Beth Dotolo, ASID, RID, NCIDQ added this to Underfoot: Your Guide to Hide
Natural color: Solid. Solid hides can come in an array of colors from black to white to brown. Solid cowhide rugs are perfect when you simply want to incorporate some shape and texture.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
This simple wall of books with rolling ladder works well with the minimal architecture of the interior. Note how the empty shelf space seems to trickle down from top right to bottom left, indicating that even room for future books can be part of an interim design.
Samantha Schoech added this to Get a Knack for Black
I am a huge fan of painting the backs of bookcases. Here they've gone whole hog, and it looks great in this big, white room. Don't you think it makes all those books look very important and serious?
Jessica Prince-Montague added this to 20 of the Most Novel Reading Spots
8. Statement shelving acts as a great backdrop when constructed from floor to ceiling. Fill it with books about art, photography and design that you can flick through for inspiration.
Luci.D Interiors added this to 5 Trend-Setting Colour Palettes for Your Home
Full-height black steel bookshelves are complemented in a stark white room by a black Saarinen end table, black leather armchair and black cow hide on a high-gloss Dalsouple white rubber floor.
Luisa Volpato Interiors added this to Size Up the Right Area Rug for Your Room
A rug can make a minimally furnished space feel welcoming. The shape of the cowhide rug here adds softer edges to this very rectangular area. A round rug would also work well in this room.

Add impact with a difference You want your home to be the one that buyers remember (and fall in love with!). If any of your rooms are feeling a little too ‘structured’ – or even boring – why not loosen them up a little by adding a cowhide? It’s amazing how well they work in many different settings and are available in a wide range of colours, even bright fluoros. Best of all, they are pretty inexpensive and add a striking touch of dram
