Jute Rugs

We are doing a rug swap in our house. I've wanted chunky loop jute rugs for quite some time.

They grace the floors of all my favorite interior designers. The frayed ends are my favorite in this one that Liz has in her home.
She wrote a wonderful review of jute rugs in her home if you are curious about how they hold up and how they feel.

Oh and she has one downstairs too...

Jen from City Farmhouse has the same rug, but in the bleached look, and she shared her journey of finally finding the perfect jute (sometimes referred to as sisal) rug.
It's pretty much the exact same story I have, particularly how much her husband was not on board initially. Mine too. Boo.

As I started to scour blog land, Pinterest, Instagram and home d├ęcor magazines, I found that folks kept referring to the SAME exact rug: this Maui Chunky Loop rug. The reviews are fabulous, the feel on your tootsies is excellent and the durability is on par with our family life.

So why reinvent the wheel on this one? Done. Maui Chunky Loop rug it is.

Our current living room rug will be picked up by it's new owner tomorrow afternoon, and then one big gigantic jute rug will be enoute to our living room. Finally. #happymama
