Au Naturel: Chic Natural-Fiber Rugs

Inspiration Gallery

Some of the most elegant rooms on my radar recently have been an eclectic mix of styles, eras, and colors, but one thing that often ties them together is a sturdy, simple natural-fiber rug. Jute, sisal, seagrass — these natural rugs are easy to care for, practical, often very affordable, and amazingly versatile with whatever style of furniture and design that you layer on top.

Here's a roundup of rooms using natural-fiber rugs, from the Hamptons to Hoboken to a stately English country house.
