Why Choose Seagrass?

Seagrass is the most versatile of the natural floor coverings. Light brown and beige hues with green tinges comprise the colors of naturally occurring seagrass that is grown in paddy fields. This allows the fibers to be died any variety of colors—or simply left to its own natural hues. As seagrass features neutral colors, seagrass rugs can accommodate many different styles and atmospheres.

The best part about seagrass rugs, is that they are the least expensive. Seagrass itself can be found easily and handled to create beautiful carpet weaves. If you’re looking for quality, durable flooring that’s good for the environment, look no further than Natural Area Rugs’ collection of seagrass rugs.

The Roots of Sisal

Adapted from wikipedia.org

Sisal has been used for many generations to create rugs and carpets. Sisal is commonly called sisal hemp, although it is not really hemp at all: this name was just associated with other fibrous materials. Sisal received its name from the port in Yucatan from which it was shipped. The ancestry and exact geographical origin is unknown, but is now grown worldwide. Sisal is second only to cotton as the most widely grown agro-based fiber in the world due to its outstanding durability.

Sisal fibers can be separated into three grades. The lowest grade sisal is mainly used for paper, the middle grade for ropes and twines, and the highest grade for yarns and carpets. The sisal fibers have a strong affinity for dyes—which makes them very useful in the rug and carpet industry. This versatility allows sisal rugs to be made in a number of color modes. Additionally, sisal does not trap dust since it is static free, which makes sisal carpet very easy to clean. Regular vacuuming will maintain a sisal rug very nicely.

NaturalAreaRugs.com has a great collection of sisal rugs and carpets that exemplify the outstanding qualities of sisal fabric. Since we don’t use any synthetics in our sisal carpets, you receive the highest quality products.

Creating a Welcoming Home

What makes a house a “home?” Color and texture are key elements in making a home warm and inviting, however, it’s also the decorative details that give a home your personal touch.   “Discovering and defining style is easier than many realize,” says Kimberly Kennedy, author of The Art and Craft of Entertaining and lifestyle consultant to the National Candle Association (NCA).

“First you need to ask yourself, ‘What makes you comfortable, happy and contented?’ Then, what types of fabrics, colors or fragrance are you comfortable with? Do you like to accessorize with candles or fresh flowers or both?”  To help make your home comfortable and inviting, Kennedy recommends the following:

A Splash of Color:  A welcoming home is created when guests recognize a reflection of who you are as soon as they enter your front door. Color is a great way to personalize your home. From colorful accessories, such as throw pillows, artwork, and even candles, a little color can go a long way in making your home unique and welcoming for guests.

Fabrics Galore:  Fabrics add texture, depth and color to a home. Whether you choose several colors or a monochromatic color scheme, add interest and dimension to your home by mixing textured fabrics, such as velvets, chenilles and silks. Not only are they pleasing to the eye, but they’re comfortable to the touch.

Decorative Accents:  Artwork, area rugs, window treatments, sconces and candelabras are another way to create an inviting home. Area rugs can anchor a room by visually breaking up areas of wood flooring and reducing sound echoing, while adding design and cushioning the step. Window treatments soften the edges of a room and reflect your personal style. Carefully placed accessories add a finishing touch.
