Decorating with Layered Rugs

One of my favorite looks as of late is layering with rugs. Similar to a sweater over a t-shirt, layering a rug over another rug or carpet brings depth, scale, and unique interest to a space.

My office + family room {see more here}

An eclectic mix of function + color + depth.

The last time I shared this space, the hide rug was the only decorative floor covering in the space on top of the wood.  It was pretty, but the room swallowed it up.  It got lost with everything else going on.  It was too small for the overall scale of the room.  By layering the sisal rug underneath which I got from Natural Area Rugs, the space finally feels grounded.  It looks complete.  The hide is still the focal point of the floor, but the layered sisal rug with midnight blue border underneath provides the appropriate scale for the room.

Why buy our Natural Seagrass Rugs?

scan02 030813

If you are looking for a natural yet unique floor covering, our seagrass and mountain grass rugs offer the perfect solution. Seagrass is a very eco-friendly choice as it is grown in a paddy or field and is very sustainable. It is a non toxic material so is ideal for allergy sufferers as it contains tannins which repel dust mites. Hard wearing, its coarse natural fibers make it an excellent option for entryways. Mountaingrass rugs as the name suggests, are made from naturally occurring mountain grasses and as well as being eco-friendly they feature a natural earthy tone.

The natural seagrass and mountaingrass rugs feature hard fibers that render them ideal for high traffic areas as they have a strong resistance to dirt and stains.

Natural Area Rugs’ offer a stunning range of readymade seagrass and mountaingrass rugs which are available in 9 standard sizes. The range also feature extra wide cotton binding. We offer free same day shipping on our readymade rugs too. Alternatively, if you have something particular in mind, you can custom design a seagrass or mountaingrass rug to your own specifications.

Customer Reviews: Meaghan Gizuk

Meaghan Gizuk recently blogged and raved about our Custom Sisal Runners for her stair. Read her story below.

 

“A sisal stair runner story”

When we moved into our home the main stairs in our home were a huge selling feature and a huge source of grief. I did NOT love the oak hand railing and the massive amounts of oak throughout the house. We have since banished the hand railings with lots and lots of white paint and hand cramps.
The original stair runner was yucky. I realize that makes me sound like a second grader but it was so yucky like kooties. And they were not wiping off. We changed the runner to a cheapo striped style from Home Depot because it was a new house for us and we had bigger fish to fry at the time. The tails in our home, specifically Oliver and Sammy [the cats] love to use our staircase as the Nascar sprint qualifying. At approximately 9pm each night like clockwork for 45 minutes it sounds like it is thundering outside because they are hammering each other up and down the stairs. Needless to say, the cheapo striped runner did not exceed expectations.
I began the hunt for a new stair runner. I went to all the carpet and flooring places in our area, inquiring about a jute/sisal stair runner and had every MAN in those stores tell me I could not put jute or sisal on stairs.
