Bringing Nature Indoors with Natural Rugs

As we're coming ever closer to Summer its time to get ready for more outdoor living and having as many BBQs as possible, however, don't forget to spring clean inside - you can achieve a fresh new look with the addition of a just few new items. Rugs make a perfect (relatively low-cost) floor covering for conservatories, kitchens and open plan living rooms in the Summer.

The Rug Lounge is a small rug store we feature occasionally on this blog and i recently revisted their natural rugs section to see what i could find. Jute and Sisal have their own unique properties, but both are durable and appealing materials that make a room a pleasure to be in. Jute is usually the softer when used in a rug and can even therefore be used in a kids room to add comfort. Sisal tends to be more coarse making it perfect for areas that see a lot of feet.

Organic Knot is my favourite natural fibre rug from The Rug Lounge. Its rough and knotted look is extremely fashionable at the moment and create a great focal point for a large space with lots of light. At £48 with free delivery its also a real bargain. Natural Herringbone features the most traditional pattern alongside a sumptuous velor border. As in the image i think this rug would suit a real wood floor, or if your not so lucky any solid colour carpet or laminate would give it a could frame.

Natural Weave
is a Jute rug with a brown cotton border, here seen on a wooden floor paired an old English arm chair in red leather. At the time of writing this rug is on offer - at a very reasonable £74.00. I think combining what are essentially natural materials with traditional approaches to pattern and form can be a real winner when styling a room.
