Jute, like a plain white tee shirt, makes a great basic. The durable construction makes it a no-brainer for big and busy families. The natural texture adds a layer of interest to your room. Speaking of layers, this rug is a great base underneath a brighter rug. Get the jute rug about two sizes up from your patterned rug, and place it underneath. The silver border will peek out and give your room an instant bohemian vibe.
