We get it: Shopping for a new rug is not easy. There are so many things to consider, from size to color to style, and there are just so many options out there, especially when you take the search online. If you're feeling overwhelmed by choices and you want a quick bit of advice, we're here to recommend looking at rugs made from natural fibers.
Natural fiber rugs have an effortless and organic feel, which makes them a dreamy addition to any space. Common natural materials used to make rugs include jute, sisal, wool, and seagrass, all of which are as durable as they are stylish. These rugs typically have a textured feel that adds visual interest to a space, and are most often found in neutral hues that work with any décor. Really, it's hard to go wrong!
Here, the best natural fiber rugs for every style.

One of the more noteworthy details is the unfinished edges, which offer a natural, relaxed vibe. This rug would look gorgeous in a coastal-style home, but could definitely work in bohemian or minimalist spaces as well.
