How to decorate with natural fibres

Discover how Sisal, Coir, Jute and Seagrass woven flooring can bring a natural presence from the loom to our living rooms for SS17.  Try our Alternative high-fibre diet in your interiors. Follow our top tips and trends for welcoming the inside-out/outside-in style of living.

New Weave

Weaving is big on the catwalks this season. Fashionable braided and basket design give a fresh twist to woven floors and for nature lovers the hip herringbone spread lovingly across a whole room gives it a golden sense of wellbeing.  This is our top solution for those who want a natural carpet to look more crisp and contemporary.


Nut Selection

Want to know what colours are in vogue? Well apart from Chinese whispers saying a lacquer red for accents, Elle Decoration tells us that nut brown is a cracking trend this season. We don’t know what your mixed nut selection is but walnut is the one for interiors. Take a look at our Sisal Herringbone Havant and Sisal Super Boucle Bickton. Marquetry is also on the design radar and watch out for natural oak with unique grain patterns.

Hot Metal

Brass and copper are the must-have metals of the moment. Try lustrous Sisal Metallic to bring instant opulence into your schemes. Go for the warmer metals or play it cool with new Aluminium shade for a sophisticated air. Fuse metallic with matte materials such as natural woods – our tip is to make an extra-large Sisal Metallic Make Me A Rug with a luxe chocolate leather border and spread across wide wooden floorboards.

Naturally Authentic 

We seek to temper uncertainty with a desire for authenticity, craftsmanship, cosiness and simplicity. We seek honest moral fibres and we salute the raw beauty of nature and handmade. Our Big Jute ticks all the boxes. It is big on comfort and brims with chunky texture. This handwoven collection is packed with natural character with names full of homely goodness including Crumpet, Toast and Muffin. Now that’s what we call high-fibre flooring.
