If you want to give your country home, hunt lodge or backcountry cabin an authentic look, one way to do is by using skins and hides of animals. They are well suited for log cabins, private and public hunting lodges, ski chalets and businesses that cater to hunters, fisherman and outdoorsmen. Here are some ways that you can use Icelandic sheepskins in your home, private or commercial business.
One of the features that helps define an outdoor-based business is the use of animal hides throughout their décor scheme. People can choose from a number of hides including spotted deer hide, reindeer hide, printed hides, and sheepskin hides. These can easily be hung on the wall of your trophy room, common areas and rooms and your guest bedrooms. They look great hanging on the wall and add a cosy feel to the rooms they are displayed in.
Another way that you can use genuine sheepskin and other hides to decorate your home or business is by using them as area rugs. In order to keep them clean and looking their best, these are best used in areas where people are not wearing wet, muddy shoes, like in your entranceway. Places where people would love the look and feel of sheepskin rugs include by their bedside. This makes it so when they get out of bed for the day or are hitting the bed for the night, they step on a soft, welcoming rug made from the softest of sheepskin.
People who really want to follow an outdoor theme for their surroundings can also choose from home accessories such as cushions and pillows made from cowhide, alpaca fleece, a variety of sheepskin, and Springbok. These cushions and pillows can be used to add an authentic flair to couches and bedding in your home or outdoor-based business. Alternatively, you may also decide that putting a genuine hide on top of your traditional quilted bedspread is a way to add more distinction to your guest rooms. Other options include Ottomans made of genuine animal hides which give you a place to prop up your feet after a long, hard day.
Great Gift Idea
Almost everyone has that one person that is impossible to find a gift for. If one of your friends or family members loves fishing, hunting and the outdoors in general, these make for great gift ideas that they will treasure forever. They are a great accent piece for trophy rooms or as an authentic addition to a log cabin style home. You can be sure that this type of gift is unique and not something that they have received before. It is something that will truly stand out and be a conversation piece for years to come. If your recipient has an active imagination, they might even come up with a crazy story about how the hide came into their possession to make it more interesting to talk about.
