We like the way hide rugs look in a home, but our personal preference is for faux over the real thing. (For a more complete debate on the use of animal skins in decor click here or here.) In case you're looking for a wool or synthetic rug in a cowhide or zebra pattern, we've rounded up a few options.

1 Stampede Rug from FLOR, $13 per tile ($4.83 per square foot)
2 Momeni Serengeti Giraffe Area Rug from Macy's, on sale for $140 - $2,720
3 Ferrata Zebra Striped Rug from Ballard Designs, on sale for $170 - $900
4 Giraffe Tufted Wool Rug from World Market, $460
5 Hand-tufted Safari Wool Rug from Overstock.com, $200
