Go Natural With Custom Sisal Rugs

Is it time to upgrade your home's decor style with something a little natural? Do you want to add an extra special touch to complement the rest of your space? If so, consider custom sisal rugs, custom jute rugs and custom wool rugs. Pottery Barn has tons of custom rugs to suit your home and your taste, so read on for some great ideas for those areas in your home that could use a little extra something.

What is Sisal?

Sisal is a natural fiber made from the Agave plant native to Mexico. The plant's large fleshy leaves are cultivated for fiber production to make ropes, matting and rugs. Known for its durability and long life, sisal is a popular choice among homeowners for high-traffic areas such as the hallway and kitchen. The designs for custom sisal rugs offered at Pottery Barn range from chunky loops to a smooth geometric motif.

Custom Jute Rugs

Jute, on the other hand, is softer, only second to cotton as the most important vegetable fiber. As you'll want to preserve this softness, jute rugs are ideal for light traffic areas, such as under the coffee table or in a living room area for prominent display. Roped loops and braided designs are often made from jute.

Custom Wool Rugs

The classic of all rug kinds, wool is as versatile as it is durable. It's the Goldilocks of rug material, as it can be placed anywhere in or outside of the home. Wool rugs at Pottery Barn vary from wool blends with nylon and spun polyester for a more smooth design, to a chunky bouclé weave for an ultrasoft feel to the foot.

Sisal, jute and wool are often combined - such as the Fibreworks® Custom Wool & Jute Rug - to make impressive rug designs such as wool loops interwoven with shiny sisal pearls.

Complement Your Home

As you shop for your custom rugs, see where they would fit within the existing borders of your home. If it's for a small area by the window underneath a side table or to showcase in the middle of the living room, you can find custom rugs made to measure for the space.

Don't overlook the bedroom! Under the bed is a perfect place for a large, decorative or bold-colored rug to match your bedroom furnishings.

If it's time to upgrade your home's decor style, think about natural fiber rugs such as sisal, jute and wool. Each one of these custom rugs will bring a tasteful touch to your space, whether it's functional or decorative.
