An attractive, sturdy doormat is nearly impossible to find. Swedish company Iris Hantverk comes to the rescue once again with the Wooden Doormat with Bristles. Rows of stiff synthetic bristles trap sand and dirt, and the durable raised beech wood slats allow water to pass through for quick drying. Tough enough for gardeners’ muddy boots, the mat is perfect for the mudroom, entryway, or porch. While the price tag may seem steep, consider the cost of lesser mats that you must continually replace; $80 at Design Within Reach.
