Merida Sisal Rugs – Before And After Home Makeover

Posted in Tips & Trends

Are you looking for some design inspiration, check the September 2010 issue of the Traditional Home Magazine, the cover features a Bridgehampton home makeover that utilized Merida’s Madagascar sisal area rugs. Architect Stuart Disston and interior designer Ken Gemes teamed up to transform a rustic country-style home into a cozy, elegant European style summer get-away for the Richter family.

The sisal area rugs’ subtle texture and color helped balance the light walls and the dark furniture. Check out photos below to see how the sisal rug added texture space and color to the home.

  1. HELP!
    I have been looking for the carpet utilized on the stairs in the september 2010 issue featured here and cannot find it anywhere…can someone please advise on where I can find it or what the manufacturer or name is?
    I am a faithful reader of traditional magazine and have a huge project to work on!

    • Hello, thank you for your recent comment. Yes, my showroom features many styles of natural sisals for the top manufactures. If you can email me an image of the product you saw in the magazine I can try and identify it for you as well as get a sample sent to you? Many thanks, Paige Pieroni – Colony Rug Company, Inc.
