Thank you! I actually found one at IKEA. I had no idea that they would carry something like that. It was beautiful and over $100 less than one I had picked up previously somewhere else!

It's from eBay. Much cheaper than anywhere else - including Ikea.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Mix it Up on the Cheap: Throw Pillows
Isn't Kim's "anything goes" approach great? There is a huge mix of pattern and color here, and they just work together.
Kathryn added this to Cowhide in Decorating a Home
The cowhide rug is the most common place that cowhide is used in the home. I love the way it's paired with the equally bold nature patterned wall to create a space that is unlike any other.
Becky Harris added this to Dazzle Them With a Rug
Kim Johnson uses the graphic pattern on this cowhide for maximum effect.
Lily Gahagan added this to Easy Green: Indoor Trees
Not a green thumb? Incorporate leafy greens via a wall mural instead.
Becky Harris added this to Cowboy Chic
Not all cowboy chic touches need to be done in browns and tans. Desire to Inspire's Kim Johnson mixes cowhide with vibrant color.
Natalie Myers added this to Design Detail: Industrious Casters
On sofas, castors allow us to easily reconfigure the seating arrangement as the social venue allows. I love the idea of changing one living room from a den with a lounge-y sectional to a formal salon with two loveseats facing each other — just because the seating units are on castors. Brilliant. Next: More wheels in home design
