Area rugs finish off any room beautifully and when you don’t have one, it definitely makes for an awkward space. I have literally spent the last four years searching for the perfect dining room rug. I’ve looked through catalogs, in stores and online, yet nothing captured my attention until I found this natural jute rug from Rug Expedition.

BEFORE:

Here is a look at my dining room before the area rug was added. As you can see, it was definitely missing something. It was bare and lacked style.  I wanted something that was timeless & neutral and Rug Expedition was the place that had it ! The rug finished off this space nicely.

Isn’t the before and after such a dramatic difference?

The 7×9 foot rug is 100% hand woven jute with a protective backing. It’s made extremely well. I’ve purchased rugs from World Market and Ikea before and their quality was simply mediocre. The “value rugs” shed and didn’t have a protective backing. I wanted a high quality rug that was going to last a long time so I was thrilled to finally find one!  It’s just beautiful.

The pictures do not show the real beauty and great quality of this rug. I can’t say enough about it. I’m thrilled with my decision.

If you’re in the market for a new rug, don’t waste your money on cheap imposters. Spend the extra money and buy something that will pass the test of time. It makes all the difference in the world. Have a great week.

    may I ask where your boxwood topiaries are from!?

    I am looking for something similar. How soft is it on bare feet?

  3. Mary norville says:

    Where did you get your rug?

  4. Smy says:

    It looks gorgeous but does it shed? I have a jute rug now that sheds like crazy and I can’t take it anymore!

    • Toni says:

      NO it doesn’t! Thats one of the biggest differences between a “value” rug and a good quality rug like mine. It does NOT shed! 🙂

  5. Dee says:

    How does it handle stains? We have yheee small kids who are always dropping yogurt, applesauce and whatnot onto the floor yet we use our dining room for every meal so I find myself buying cheap natural fiber rugs and replacing every couple of months.

    • Toni says:

      We haven’t had that issue so I can’t honestly answer the question. My kids are older and more careful. I can tell you that its made very well and it stands apart from the value rugs you see at the chain stores. Its just a much better quality.

  6. Becky says:

    How do you clean/maintain it? Vacuum or broom? What about spills?

  7. kimberly says:

    very beautiful! warms the space! just out of curiosity…your table looks like mine. did you treat it or do anything to the top to protect it? the wood on mine is very textured and i have a feeling it will be hard to clean if i need to remove more than crumbs.

  8. Lori Brown says:

    Looks great. I have found all jute rugs to shed including the ones from higher end stores. I figured that’s just what a jute rug did. So I’m very interested in buying this one now.

    Love how the furniture and decorations are neatly organized, I like this style!
