    I have to say I LOVE my reindeer rugs…I have one in my bedroom and one on my landing and they look fabulous on my oak flooring. Yes they shed but a good shake outside once a week and hanging outside for the day every month or so keeps it to a minimum. Personally I think vacuuming up a few hairs everyday is well worth the beauty these rugs give to a home.

    Ah, that’s where we were going! While I love how these rugs look in photos, I couldn’t have one in reality. Quite apart from the shedding (good point from Kim) I don’t do animal skins of any kind at home – sheepskin, leather, nothing. This has proved really tempting over the years when a particular design piece has wooed me – Robin Day’s Forum sofa comes to mind – BUT, for me – and this is purely, purely personal – there’s no point in choosing not to consume animal products but then to use by-products as decoration.
    So yep, aesthetically, a great look and I get why you’re lovin’ it, but am staying true to my roots! :)

    I love them but…. we have one in our living room and we have a spaniel that malts terribly and I can report that the reindeer malts more than the dog! It drives me mad. It’s gone to live in the conservatory for the winter!!

      Same here, I bought one when I was in Norway, Hair everywhere. I much prefer sheepskin.
