Inspired by: Natural Fiber Rugs

Natural fiber rugs are one of those great design elements that fall in that sweet spot of being completely classic and versatile (they can fit in with almost any design style), but also surprisingly affordable.

I love that they are usually so light in color but also resist staining, because light rugs just make a room feel so much more bright. I love that they can be layered to gorgeous effect with smaller, richer and more detailed rugs (which is also a great money-saving solution). I love that they ground a room in natural textures. I love that they are easy to care for. I love the way seagrass smells (a fresh, grassy smell) and the way jute feels (soft and slightly springy).

But I really appreciate that they look equally classic and complementary with so many styles.

I especially love how Mark D. Sikes and Lauren Liess use natural fiber rugs.

Mark D. Sikes uses so much texture in his traditional and classic spaces and the rugs fit right in, offering a casual element to more formal skirted furniture and pristine antiques.

And Lauren Liess’s rustic, earthy, pared back yet textural spaces, which perfectly marry modern and traditional elements are grounded perfectly with sisal, seagrass or jute rugs.
