DECOR TREND: Sisal and jute rugs

DECOR TREND: Sisal and jute rugs | My Paradissi

I love rugs! They not only help define specific areas of the home but they also add texture and color into the space. When living in a warm country like Greece, however, things are not that easy when it comes to picking the right rug for your home. Reason is simple. In a 30oC temperature nobody needs wool or polyester under their feet.

Still, a rug is an irreplaceable accent of the interior design. So, instead of skipping having one in the home altogether, I find the use of sisal and jute rugs the best way to take advantage of all their benefits with a more summerish attitude. For the definition, sisal is a tropical plant originating from Mexico, that gives a sturdy and durable fiber which is commonly used for the manufacturing of rope, twine, paper, clothing and rugs. Similarly, jute is a soft vegetable fiber which is usually spun into long, strong threads.

The coarse, natural texture of a sisal or a jute rug brings a sophisticated country vibe to the decor and can be matched with various design styles, from contemporary minimalistic to more elegant and chic interiors (not even mentioning modern rustic, ethnic or cottage ones- it is absolutely at home in such environments!). A large rug can be used as a base for layering other rugs (like a cowhide or a vintage kilim) to create a visual interest and add even more warmth and texture for the colder months. Smaller rugs, runners or round shapes look awesomely pretty in bedrooms and bathrooms as well.

What do you think of natural fibre rugs? Own any of these or intend to buy one? Check under the jump for some serious visual inspiration and my favorite shopping picks!

  1. Lovely! I'm more partial to colourful, statement rugs myself, but these are great for a calming, natural feel.

  2. υπέροχη η συλλογή που έφτιαξες! απλότητα, λευκό, χτιστά έπιπλα..πολύ καλοκαιρινή διάθεση! Για τους ζεστούς μήνες, τα χαλιά από σκοινί, σπάγκο ή άλλα φυσικά υλικά είναι μάλλον καλύτερα γιατί "αναπνέουν". Φοβάμαι όμως ότι ο σπάγκος για παράδειγμα, είναι άγριο υλικό και τραχύ για την πατούσα! έχω πλέξει με σπάγκο και μετά από λίγη ώρα θέλω οπωσδήποτε ένα διάλειμμα!
