The Decorista Trend Spotting...cowhide meets zebra

I have spotted this look a few places now and the jury is still out.
I am really on board with the look of layered rugs, however have yet to try layering animal hide rugs.
In this particular room I think its smashing but I am not completely sold yet.
What do we think of this trend?

and speaking of animal prints...
I have a very big crush on this set of leopard sheets from Ballard Designs,
thanks to miss Katie A.
What am I going to do until I get a set in my hands? They are so light & dreamy.
Oh my, I think I have fallen in love.
