Nothing ties a room together like a great rug, and nothing adds texture and warmth to a space like natural fibers. So if you're looking to do both, you can't go wrong with a jute or seagrass rug. These rugs can be quite expensive, but for this roundup we've put together a few budget-friendly choices—8'x10' rugs (or a very close equivalent) for less than $300.

Many of these rugs are available in sizes other than 8'x10' — we just chose that size to more easily compare prices, and to ensure that you can buy a room-sized rug for under $300. So if you don't see the size you're looking for, click through for others.
