Get the Look: 16 Round Jute Rugs

Fresh off a wicker roundup in the Boston Globe (I can’t believe they didn’t go with my “Wickah Smaht” headline) and following up on yesterday’s 18 Rooms with Round Jute Rugs, I’ve pulled together a collection of round jute rugs (or hemp, or other natural fibers), most of them lacey.

These round jute rugs are intricate but rough, with a ton of tactile appeal. They’re great for entry halls and beach houses or other high traffic situations, or just to add a layer of texture in a neutral room. You can also hang a swirly jute rug on the wall, above a sofa, a bookshelf, or a bed as large, easy, and affordable adornment.

I’m kind of in love with number 3, the fantastical Heenalu jute rug (yes, I realize that one’s not a round jute rug, but I had to include it). Number 8 is fun too, though probably a bit on the boho side for me. Number 7 from Serena & Lily is neat and tidy, and Number 14 comes with a fluorescent pink border too, though I’m not sure if they ship to the States.

Temps have been above 40 in Boston, so I figure it’s time to start thinking about summer decor. I think straw, sisal, wicker, rattan, jute, hemp, and the like can have a place if used sparingly and originally. We can start by checking out round jute rugs.

Sourcing It: 42 Bookends

Following up on yesterday’s painted bookshelves post, it seemed like a good time to run this. When I put this together a few weeks ago, I had just spent the weekend clearing off our living room bookshelves. Not clearing them of books, but the way too many paintings that are stacked three deep, and vases, and magazines that need filing, and the Swedish Lily candlesticks I keep buying on eBay, and so on. I don’t really need bookends, since I have so many books they go from one end to the next, but I’m often tempted by them design-wise. Here’s an array of bookends both functional and beautiful.

Get the Look: 65 Modern Candlesticks and Candelabra

For years I’ve adored the Lucite pretzel knot candlesticks by Dorothy Thorpe—a decade ago I had stashed a tear that features one prominently, and I still have it. I think it’s the ultimate modern candelabra. Lately I’ve been interested in brass candelabra with joints, as well as simple Danish candlesticks in teak or painted wood. There are tons of newer, contemporary ones too, like Muuto’s green raw wood candelabra and the chunky chrome or glass tubular pieces that refer back to the ’70s. Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 44 Rooms with Candlesticks & Candelabra, here’s a shopping guide for 65 modern candlesticks and modern candelabra.
