Good Questions: What Do You Think of Jute Rugs?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I am in the early stages of furnishing a new apartment, and am interested in rugs for the bedroom and living room. For the living room, I love the price, color , and look of this jute boucle rug in "rust" at West Elm, but I'm worried that jute rugs tend to smell.

In your experience is a jute rug a stinky proposition? And if so, can you recommend anything similar in a non-smelly material? Any insights on good, inexpensive rug resources would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! Nomi
