10 Easy Pieces: Indoor-Outdoor Jute Rugs


10 Easy Pieces: Indoor-Outdoor Jute Rugs

July 21, 2015

The outdoor rug is often characterized by a polyurethane seal ornother weather-resistant coating, which for really exposed areas of the garden might make sense. But for the indoor/outdoor border (beneath an awning, a porch, or covered pergola), the coarse and sturdy threads of jute offer a natural alternative. The only prerequisite? Keep jute rugs clean and dry.

Above: The Handwoven Lorne Rug is an elongated oval shape; $248 for the 5-by-8-foot size at Anthropologie.


Above: A hand-braided, Round Jute Rug inspired by Scandinavian design is $295 with an 8-foot diameter from Serena & Lily.



Above: The large and pale-colored Chunky Hand-Braided Jute Rug from Restoration Hardware has subtle irregularities and is available in a spectrum of neutrals; $1,595 for the 8-by-10-foot size.


Above: A subtle pattern of ivory dots is seen in the Dotted Jute Rug from West Elm; $299.99 for the 8-by-10-foot size.


Above: A Natural Heathered Chenille Jute Rug is softened with rayon chenille woven throughout. This rug is best used in a covered area such a porch or even screened porch during rainy months; $509 for the 8-by-10-foot size from Pottery Barn.


Above: A chunky-knit rug woven tight for a softer hand feel: The Hand-Braided Jute Rug, shown in charcoal, is $995 and measures 8 by 10 feet.
