One of the questions I’m asked most when I share my kitchen on social media is, “Where did you get the rug?”
The answer is, it’s a braided jute I purchased from Joss & Main a few years ago. It has worn really well and has even been hosed down a couple of times to remove stains and an unfortunate “stomach bug incident”.
It did finally start to unravel along the edge, though, creating a loop that we all kept tripping over. Jeff finally took a pair of scissors to the offending loop and then, well…it looked like this…
So, it was about time to get a new rug. It was one of those things that hung out on my mental shopping list for a while, but I was never compelled enough to actually buy one. It just wasn’t a big priority.
When I was in Raleigh visiting Jeff’s family, I took some time to go to World Market. That’s a fun store to just mill around in and, while I was milling, I found a new braided jute runner that was perfect for my kitchen, so I picked it up. It’s the Natural Chunky Braided Jute Flynn Rug…
The nice thing about this rug is that it has a backing, so it’s more substantial and (hopefully) less likely to unravel over time.
It’s a small change, but the new rug looks sharp.
Just another small finishing detail to this kitchen makeover.
