I’m sure this diamond patterned Stark carpet has been blogged about over and over again…but for good reason! It’s such a fantastic, versatile rug that looks great with any type of room.
The Stark sisal is a recurring piece that I often see in dining rooms and living rooms. Well, not in “real life”, mostly in publications. You see, most clients are apprehensive about using sisal rugs in their home. Their view is that it is high maintenance and not very practical. Maybe there is some truth to that, but you just really can’t beat the look of a sisal rug!
I really do see this particular Stark rug EVERYWHERE. The name of it is Natura. I was looking in my Style Book last night and started to notice just how many photos I’ve torn out that include this Stark rug! What are the odds? Well, don’t answer that 🙂
This rug would be perfect for a project I am working on but I’m hesitant about it and wondering- is it just a fad?
Cote de Texas used the Natura in one of her projects. Isn’t this living room lovely? The diamond patterned sisal she chose is a perfect match with the paint color.
Here’s another instance where the Natura showed up- but in a dining room. For a room like this where lots of grays are used, I think it is essential to have a natural rug like the sisal to warm up the space so it doesn’t look too stark (nor too matchy)
I spy…the Natura! In a Cote de Texas post
And another instance where a designer used the Stark rug. This time, it’s in the “Yoga dining room” that was featured in House Beautiful. I always remember this as the Yoga dining room because they framed grass Yoga mats with panel moldings for the backdrop of this room! Now if only I could find my old mat from Tarjay…
Same house- different room! The Natura was also used in the client’s living room to keep it consistent throughout the public spaces.
This D Home spread featured a dining room with the patterned rug. It complements the beautiful de Gournay wallpaper nicely.
I found this funky dining room in Veranda. What do you know? They used the Stark rug too!
Would love to know your thoughts! Are you already over this rug or is it a classic?
