Chesterfield Leather

Our custom mosaic cowhide patchwork rugs are manufactured to meet your specifications. They can be created from any of the cowhides we carry. The images shown are examples of some of our most popular colors. Lead times are approximately 4 – 6 weeks.

Our hair-on hides are guaranteed to be the thickest, softest, best in texture, color, and pattern available. Our thick, supple, shed-free cowhides may be used as area rugs, wall hangings, upholstery, and fashion accessories. Originating from Brazil, our hides are hand selected for their superior quality, shine, and suppleness. Our cowhides are naturally resistant to dirt and stains and are easy to clean with occasional light vacuuming. Spots and spills can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth using a small amount of soap if necessary.

Note: the hides pictured above are for the purpose of illustrating approximate variations in pattern and color. All cowhides are made by nature so no two are exactly alike. The cowhide you receive may not look exactly like the hide pictured, but it is guaranteed to be the highest premium quality hair-on hide available. Please note that sizes are approximate.

WRINKLES & FOLD MARKS: Wrinkles and fold marks formed during shipping will quickly fade away and disappear completely after the hide is laid on the floor.

 

Bowling Green

The transition into college can be tough for anyone, especially someone who moved hours away from their home without knowing anybody. I started my first semester of college at Bowling Green State University, which is three hours away from my hometown. I was the only one of my friends who chose to go there, and I was one of the only students from my high school to attend BGSU. I was homesick before I even got there, but how I decorated my dorm room helped me feel more at home. I color coordinated everything. My bed spread, sheets, bins, rug, pillows, and everything else were a light teal color. Besides the color coordination, I had string lights across my entire dorm with pictures of my friends and family attached to them. The pictures that were hung up reminded me of my friends and family and all the memories we share together. The memories were very comforting during this period of transition, because I had a rough first few weeks at college. As time went on, I started making friends and enjoying my time at BGSU. My friends would comment on how cute I decorated my dorm room, and it made me feel good about myself, because I picked everything out. As the semester came to an end, I decided on a major that BGSU did not have, and transferred to The University of Akron for Civil Engineering. I had to leave all my new friends and start over. But, this time it would be easier because I was able to roommate with my best friend. Because we are very similar in many ways, our color scheme matched, and we could match our entire dorm room. Our room had three basic themes: teal, traveling, and our favorite TV show, Friends. This dorm room was much bigger than my room at BGSU, so I could decorate much more. I hung up posters, more lights, a tapestry, more pictures, and even two pieces of my own artwork. This dorm room let me express myself through memories, my interests, and my own art. I felt that our room really described who my roommate and I were, and that is what I feel décor is about. Décor is expressing yourself through things that you enjoy. Not everyone like the same colors and decorations I have, but I do. Décor is about expressing yourself. Whether it is at your permanent residence or your home-away-from-home, décor can display your true personality.
