Styling 101: Natural Living Room Rugs

When it comes to choosing a rug for our living room we believe  it is best to choose a natural rug made from sustainable fibres for the health and well being of your family. Natural living room rugs are made from natural fibres like wool , cotton, viscose, jute or even seagrass. 

The latest trend in lounge rooms is to opt for of a warm natural pallet. Warm tones in your living room conjure up the feelings of security, peace leading us back to nature. 

Opt for natural rugs in your home. 

Recently we were involved in a photoshoot for The Collab Society. Lousie from Villa Styling chose our Stone Natural Rug in an extra large size for the living room. The Stone Natural Rug is a practical rug suitable for high traffic wool areas. The large rug  not only laid the foundation for the room but  anchored all the furniture and artwork within the room. 

A Room Full of Neutral Tones

Lousie nailed the brief creating a beautiful space that was warm, inviting and most of all cozy where you would love to snuggle up and read a book.

Working from the floor up Lousie  replaced  the tiled floors with Hybrid Flooring in Paperbark from Flooring Online. A quick and easy DIY solution for flooring renovations.

Keeping things neutral Louise chose our  Braided Wool Rug made of 100% New Zealand Wool in the extra large size of 250 x 350cm. Hand braided or plaited then  sewn together this rug is  made in India using only the highest quality wool. Fairly made and Goodweave approved this rug ticks all the boxes to last a very long time.

We love the low pile and ease care factor of this particular rug range. If you are looking for an easy care rug made for high traffic areas in larger sizes our Braided Wool Range of rugs is a good choice. These rugs come in round and rectangle sizes and in four different colours. 


More texture was added with a sofa from Jessie Sofa in the stunning Warwick shade Noyack Gerbera. 3D Wall Panels painted in Dulux's Hog Bristle Half.  

Hog Bristle has been given a bad rep over the years for being too beige but it is the perfect blend for a warm neutral look in the living room. 


Artwork in the living room will also bring harmony and balance to a room. Adel Naidoo beautiful floral painting does just that.
