The Strategist: The Best Sisal, Jute and Abaca Rugs, According to Interior Designers

Dash and Albert Framework Indigo Woven Sisal Rug
Four of our experts turn to Dash and Albert (a designer favorite) for its sisal rugs, including Woodlands, Texas–based interior designer Nancy Charbonneau, who says that it’s her “go-to source for ready-made sisal rugs,” because its “selection and durability is by far the best, and the textures and colors are fresh and on trend.” Interior designer Karen B. Wolf agrees, recommending this checked rug that is 80 percent sisal and 20 percent wool. “For sisal rugs, I usually prefer not only a natural look, but a soft feel underfoot,” says Wolf. “Adding wool to sisal gives you that extra plush feel, and today’s technology has ensured that the wool blend upholds the integrity of the product to obtain a natural look and feel,” she adds.
