In the dining room, formal elements combine with understated pieces for an unfussy elegance. A sisal rug and tabletop topiaries create an air of informality, while the traditional wainscoting and crystal chandelier strike a polished note.
This traditional living room, designed by Alison Davin of jute, is a small space, but uses the room efficiently. The white walls make the room more airy and the sisal rug and leather chairs gives it a cozy feel.
A lacquered red dresser offers a bold pop of color against the neutral oak wall paneling and a place to store office supplies. An ultra-modern chair sits atop the sisal rug and plays off the geometric lines of the paneling with a triangular back and seat.
This blue entry hall features a lovely pairing of rustic and elegant design. A sisal-style hall rug protects strand-carbonized bamboo flooring from heavy foot traffic, while built-in bench seating is made more useful with underneath storage.
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. Here, the faint flame stitch introduces pattern that’s not overwhelming, while the neutral greige hue balances the living room's vibrant cranberry walls.
This transitional living room features a vibrant red sofa decorated with blue and tan throw pillows. A square wood coffee table sits between a pair of blue and white upholstered armchairs and a tufted tan armchair, while a sisal rug covers the hardwood floors. Tan curtains and colorful artwork provide finishing touches.
This coastal breakfast room brings the sea inside with open bay windows that provide a great view. Bamboo table and chairs, a sisal rug and nautical striped cushions all give the space a beach house feel.
