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.
