One of the biggest trends in rugs right now is the diamond patterned sisal. We like it because it can bring a casual feeling to a formal room (like the one below), but also bring a little texture and graphic pattern.

Most of the diamond jute or sisal rugs you see in magazines are made by high-end companies like Stark and Shyam Ahuja where an 8 x 10 will run you well into the thousands. Here’s a close up of a handwoven diamond sisal by Stark. Keep an eye out on One Kings Lane, they often sell these Stark rugs at a great discount. Also Stark has an outlet in Connecticut where you can often find these rugs at slashed prices.
