Choosing rugs for rooms with heavy traffic can be a daunting task. If you’re looking for something timeless and transitional that also packs a space with rich texture, consider a sisal area rug.

Sisal rugs are versatile and known for their strength and durability, making them ideal for hard-working kitchens. "Merida nailed their collaboration with Ashe + Leandro, and as soon as I saw this design, I knew it would provide strong visual contrast and drama in such a narrow space. The deep charcoal color was bold enough to stand on its own against the kitchen's edgy wood and marble finishes, and the handwoven sisal and suede composition is ideal for all the traction that area will likely receive. Great design, great wear and tear, can't beat it," says Cortney Bishop of Cortney Bishop Design.
