One Rug, 13 Ways: Jute Woven

In our 1 Rug A Zillion Ways posts, we show you that great rugs can be used in a dizzying array of spaces. In this installment, we tackle one of our most versatile and best-selling rugs ever: Jute Woven.

A rug that has a permanent place in our Designer Favorites collection, this all-natural rug features a unique, tightly-woven braided construction. It’s a design that can read sophisticated or rustic and can be used in a  living room, dining room, or covered porch. No matter where you use it, it lends a space, rich texture. 

Best of all: Jute Woven is crafted from eco-friendly, renewable natural materials by artisans committed to fair labor practices, so it is a sustainable, socially conscious choice. See how our favorite decorators and design influencers use Jute Woven in their designs:

Jacqueline de Montravel the blogger behind Ducks Goose (@ducksgoose_) has a motto of “styled living simply achieved.” Our Jute Woven rug is a part of her simple-but-chic Connecticut stairwell which feels like a modern take on Shaker style.

Designer Alison Pickart in San Anselmo, California isn’t afraid to mix styles and patterns. A neutral, textural Jute Woven rug lets her pair bold yellow and white stripes with a fig leaf pattern wallpaper in this cute and quirky sitting room.

Liz MacPhail Interiors in Austin proves that “neutral” doesn’t have to mean boring in this timeless living room. Here the animal print sofa, textured jute rug, and matchstick shades are all technically “neutral” but through layers of pattern and texture they give the space tons of visual interest.

Designed by Holly Waterfield for The Jackson Home Company, a residential design and development business, this bedroom is all about the view. However, Waterfield used rustic, Western-inspired touches to further give the room a sense of place.

In another Jackson Home Company project, Jute Woven is used in a children’s room that leans hard into neutral territory. Jute is a natural choice for kids’ rooms because it is both an all-natural material and easy to clean.

Celebrated design firm Kemble Interiors used our Jute Woven as an elegant foundation in this muted blushing bedroom. The jute rug brings the four-poster bed down to earth and is one of several nods to Nature in this room.

“This guest room decor was a last-minute decision and turned out to be one of my very favorite rooms in the house,” says Annie, the blogger behind Home of Malones in Florida. Designed by Lacy Phillips Designs, the room’s jute rug, white walls, and turquoise accent wall are a subtle take on the usual tropical motifs.

Our Jute Woven rug is a textural anchor to the minimalist styling in this living room by Shelby Girard, the vice president of creative and design at  Havenly, who is in the midst of renovating herhome in Connecticut.

Lamp designer Jana Bek used Jute Woven in the makeover of her former Brooklyn apartment. Here the neutral rug was a strategic choice. Bek says she sticks to neutral colors and timeless silhouettes for walls, rugs, and major furniture pieces, and uses pops of color in accents and art.

Legendary decorator Sister Parish’s great-granddaughter Eliza Harris (@sisterparishdesign) dug through the Parish Hadley archives to decorate her Connecticut home. The bird that hangs in her dining room hung in her great grandmother’s Fifth Avenue apartment. Sister Parish would surely have approved of the timeless Jute Woven rug.

Maggie York the founder of Margaret of York LLC describes this room as “The sweetest little room designed to foster imagination, comfort, and happiness.” Our Jute Woven rug balances out the exuberant wallpaper by Caitlin Wilson.

In a guest bedroom by York, white is the dominant hue, but touches of pale blue and the sandy hue of natural jute bring the room to life. The rug’s texture and accent pillow’s pattern add further interest to this calming space.

In this Nashville kitchen by LK Studio, a residential interior design studio based in New York, designer details elevate a cook’s kitchen. Designer Lily Dierkes used elements usually found in a living room like a jute rug, fabric pendant, and even floor lamps to make the space feel as chic as the rest of the home.
