Image from Dust Jacket Attic  Currently I’m having a love affair with rugs, specifically one rag in particular. The sisal rug is the perfect home accessory for adding an organic look to your design. While it is true sisal rugs have been gracing the floors of homes since the mid 1900’s, there has never been more choices or ways to style a sisal rug than as of late. I’m loving the delicate round rugs for an entry way, like in the top images.  Pair this organic-style area rug with modern entryway chandelier and you will make a designer statement. A sisal runner with a greek key or plain banded border works on practically every staircase.   Image from BHG Laying one on your patio is easy and non-fussy way to step up your outdoor style. Or my personal favorite, the layering effect where you place a smaller and usually brighter toned rug on top of the traditional sisal. All effective, and chic ways to add sisal to your home. And did you know sisal rugs are produced from an actual plant, the Agave Sisalana. Fibre is extracted by a process known as decortication , where leaves are crushed and beaten by a rotating wheel set with blunt knives, so that only fibres remain. The fibre is then dried, brushed and baled for export and eventually weaved into the rugs we all know so well today. Images: Dust Jacket Attic , Better Homes & Gardens
