Adobe asked Valerio Dewalt Train Associates to reinvent the workplace strategy and customer interface spaces at its global headquarters in San Jose. The watchword is interaction. The new customer experience center (CEC) on the first and second floors immerses clients in the company's latest digital offerings with interactive displays in a warm, comfortable environment modeled after a home or loft.
The design team overhauled a typical office floor, eliminating most private offices in favor of open plan neighborhoods to facilitate collaboration; the design is being rolled out across Adobe offices worldwide. This project received a LEED Platinum rating.
Executives also got a new open floor plan, with amenities such as conference and "war" rooms, touchdown areas for board members, and social and entertaining areas available to everyone on campus, further encouraging everyone to rub shoulders and share ideas.

In larger and smaller rooms of your home alike, there is an aesthetic need to add a floor covering to the same. Area rugs are a wonderful way to incorporate additional style into the space and to define areas of the room while also adding a touch of comfort and softness to the space. While there are many types of floor coverings that you can choose from, such as wool area rugs or Oriental rugs, natural cowhide rugs are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons. With a closer look at what a cowhide rug has to offer, you may decide that this is the type of rug that you want in your space.
The Look of Cow Hide
Animal skin rugs in general can bring a unique element of style to the space. Cowhide rugs in particular are highly versatile in style. You can find them in many of the most elegant homes today, including those with a modern or contemporary look, a traditional look and even a rustic look. Their versatility in style makes them suitable for many spaces, and one of the reasons they look amazing in a space is because of the softness and texture they bring into the room. Authentic cowskin rugs are naturally beautifully and the thickness of the cow hide coat coupled with the unique colors in the cow hide make it interesting and appealing as a floor covering.
In addition to providing the resident with a stylish option for their space, cowhide rugs also have other benefits. Cow hide is a thick, highly durable material, so this is a type of floor covering that is perfect for high-traffic areas of the home. The material is hypo-allergenic, and it is even an eco-friendly option. Cows are generally raised as a food source, and using a cowskin rug in your home ensures that there is minimal waste with the food-related activities associated with cows. This is an environmentally preferable alternative to using a rug made out of synthetic materials and that is colored with harsh dyes.
If you have been looking for the ideal floor covering to use in your space, cowskin rugs may indeed be the perfect solution. Many people overlook cowhide rugs as a possible option for their space because these are not sold in many stores that sell area rugs. However, these natural animal skin rugs can truly add a new dimension of style to your space in ways that other types of area rugs cannot. Take time to explore the different styles of cowskin rugs available today, and consider how a new animal skin rug can transform the look for one or more rooms in your home. We recommend conducting an online search to find a reputable retailer of cowhide rugs.
