Late autumn is definitely a time for hibernating. The clocks have changed and the nights are darker, and the chilly weather means all our instincts are telling us to hunker down at home with the fire blazing and a pot of soup bubbling on the hob.

Our homes at this time of year become more than domestic spaces: they’re our cocoons, our havens of warmth and comfort. Texture – whether in the form of fleecy throws and fluffy cushions or rugs – becomes more important as we seek out ways to take the edge off the chill. And this is where carpet definitely trumps solid flooring. Yes, wood, tiled and flagstone floors can look great, but cosy they are most definitely not.

Our aim at Seagrass & Sisal is to provide you with organic, hardwearing carpet and rugs of the highest possible quality that not only perform brilliantly in terms of warmth and comfort, but look fantastic into the bargain. A statement rug (or several) from any of our ranges will instantly warm up a chilly corner and turn a neglected space into a talking point. Check out our range of quirky paper rugs in eye-catching designs and vibrant colours here, or click here to see our collection of beautifully soft and silky viscose rugs – perfect for adding a luxurious feel to bedrooms and living rooms.

Looking for something unique? Our Rug Creator makes it incredibly easy to design a rug that’s exactly right for your home. All you have to do is specify the dimensions, choose your basic material (from coir, seagrass or sisal) then add a border from the 34 different options on offer, ranging from leather in dark Liquorice to pale silvery-blue linen – the Preview facility will show you how your border and rug will look together. Once you place your order we’ll deliver your bespoke rug to your door three to four weeks, so if you want it in place before your festive guests arrive, now’s the time to start shopping!
