I saw this rug earlier in the week when I was perusing the Jonathan Adler website. It’s jute: Wow.
I tend to this of his line as having fantastically bold graphics and shiny, of-the-moment statement pieces, so naturally this rug was a pleasant surprise. It’s such a welcome twist on the rectilinear and stiff natural fiber rugs that we see everywhere. I love those staple rugs too, but this one is just a whole different concept! I think it would look amazing as a rug-on-rug piece; by that I mean it would look perfect placed on top of another bright rug…fuchsia, teal, canary….so many choices.
I should say that when I saw this rug, the first person I thought of was my friend Jessica over at Design Wonderland. If you haven’t checked her site out yet I suggest you make your way over; it’s one of my favorites, and really does a superb job at capturing her global/funky/natural/glamorous style….kind of like this rug!
