Layered Rugs

Here in Vancouver we were blessed with the most beautiful extended summer.  All of the sunshine and warmth makes it easy to embrace the fact that cooler weather is here and Fall has officially arrived.

When temperatures drop cozy layers are a wardrobe necessity.  Why not bring that same comfort and warmth into your home?  One way to achieve this is to layer area rugs.  I love the look of starting with a simple sisal or jute rug; it provides the perfect neutral and affordable backdrop for any colour or style. Add in a faux-fur blanket, candles and a few darker throw pillows and you're ready for the season ahead!

Pumpkin spice latte anyone?;)

  3. Yes, I layer in the Winter over a sisal and then in the warmer months I don't. It's great how the room can change so much by that extra rug on there.

  7. Sisal rugs are made from natural fibers derived from the 'agave sisalana' cactus plant that is grown in the semi-arid regions of Brazil and Africa. The plants are known for their toughness and durability, to the extent that the commercial production of Tanzanian sisals have survived every drought in over a century. The fibers are harvested by hand from the leaves of the plant and can grow up to three feet long. Each leaf contains about 1,000 fibers which are processed (crushed, beaten, washed, dried, brushed and baled) to make rugs and the remainder of the plant is used to produce electricity to sustain the local economies of the grower countries. Not only are sisal rugs extremely durable, they also pose several environmental benefits; they are harvested in a sustainable manner and are renewable as well as biodegradable Sisal rugs are generally very refined looking and are available in a variety of colors. Although they are not as soft as silk, they are very comfortable to walk on as the fibers don't stab you and leave bits of sisal rugs in your skin. Sisal is different from coir, hemp grass and jute; it is much stronger and hence durable than most natural fibers. Its strength makes it perfect for making plaster reinforcements, dartboards, ropes and twine for marine and bailing purposes. Sisal's textured look makes it a favorite among interior designers across the world. These qualities of sisal also make it a preferred material for rugs and carpets. Because of their tough construct and inherent durability, sisal rugs are ideal for in home use and are recommended for high-traffic areas and commercial use. Most sisal rugs have a layer of latex applied to their backsides which helps keep the integrity of the rug's weave and makes them extra durable, thus prolonging their life. There are also several protective products for coating sisal rugs to resist liquid spills, repel water and retard soiling. Machine woven, natural fibers such as sisal, sisal wool, wall-to-wall carpets, mountain grass, jute area rugs and sea grass rugs have non-toxic and anti-static properties which make them an excellent choice for light-commercial and residential use. The natural fibers create healthy indoor humidity levels, prevent the buildup of static and do not have any off-gassing fumes that can cause irritation to the eyes or throat.It must be kept in mind that sisal rugs must not be placed in areas where there are chances of exposure to direct moisture. . jute rugs is because moisture can cause the rug to become water stained and wavy over time.
