10 Easy Pieces: Coconut Fiber Doormats

September 12, 2017

I’ve always admired a well-thought-out doormat. Take the inset entry mat in Remodelista’s Francesca Connolly’s Brooklyn house, shown here, for example. Or the the wall-to-wall custom mat in New York store La Garçonne by architect Solveig Fernlund. In both cases an old standard—the coconut fiber mat—is used in an interesting way.

Here are our favorite basic coconut (also known as coir) doormats to get started. (For a custom fit, we hear Cocomats n’More are good for architectural use.)

The Natural Oversize Door Mat with Braided Edge measures 36 by 48 inches and is without a vinyl backing (for a more handmade look); we found it at Nickey Kehoe for $0.
