Mix It with Other Textures
Not only is sisal a durable option for a high-traffic area, but it can also unify a mix of different-textured pieces. Here, a deep upholstered sofa, a leopard-print ottoman, a pair of stools with woven seats, and a furry Moroccan rug come together to form a cozy corner anchored by a large sisal.
Mix It with Traditional Furniture
Just because a room is meant for formal dining doesn’t mean it has to feel stuffy. A sisal centered underneath traditional dining furniture plays down the dressed-up look—and mood—in the room. What’s more, the chinoiserie chairs and dolphin-base table take on a more casual and inviting vibe atop the sisal.
Mix It with Bold Patterns
In any corner where myriad patterns and colors converge in a small space, a woven sisal rug can be the perfect neutral counterpoint. The floral curtains, zebra-print cushions, speckled lamp base, and bright colors in this nook come together nicely thanks to the sisal mat, which completes the space.
