When it comes to home décor, does going easy on the earth have to be hard on the eyes? Natural Area Rugs, a quality distributor and Internet retailer of natural fiber area rugs, knows just how gorgeous going green can be.
Although most of us don't secretly wish for our houseguests to compliment us on our eco-responsible decorating skills, green decorating is gaining momentum. Decorators can be inspired by the growing choice of excellent products, from organic cotton bedding to resilient bamboo flooring, adorned with stylish all natural fiber area rugs.
Continuing the trend, more people are restoring and reusing older furniture. An old chest of drawers found in aunt Jessie's attic becomes a showpiece bathroom vanity. Couples shopping for a new dining table are making sure it's been Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. Were the trees used to make the table harvested with as little environmental impact as possible? Green minds want to know!
Bamboo and cork, both very sustainable resources are earth-friendly flooring choices. Reclaimed wood flooring has is becoming popular for the recycling crowd. There was a time when lumberjacks would let log booms float downriver. Some of those logs would end up on the river bottom. Companies are now harvesting and drying that wood, which has a tendency to be strong from all those years of absorbing minerals from the water.
What better way to compliment and add comfort to a wood floor then to top it off with an equally exquisite natural fiber area rug.
One source for the materials of these fine rugs is the agave plant. It's knife-shaped leaves hold a fiber called sisal. Sisal is versatile and hardwearing and at Natural Area Rugs, sisal area rugs continue to be in demand.
Another versatile and longwearing material used for natural area rugs is wool. Wool gets a green light as one of the most eco-friendly resources available. A natural wool area rug goes to work keeping airborne contaminants trapped deep in its fibers and will continue to purify the air for many years. Plus, wool is biodegradable, which means it won't sit in landfills for decades.
