Burlap comes in several weaves, from the very rough and heavy 7 oz. garden burlap (top) historically used outdoors, to the finely-woven bleached burlap (bottom.) Second from top is the coffee-been sack variety of burlap and second from bottom is Jute burlap. (Jute is one of the most inexpensive natural fibres on the market, and is exceedingly durable.)
Add a touch of the unexpected at your next gathering. If you're in the market for a small tree, why not show it off to guests in an unimagined space, like the entrance hall. Plant the tree shortly thereafter.
I love the look of this luxurious and highly-textured space. The homemade burlap headboard (old burlap sacks found at a yard sale and stitched across a frame) adds a graphic, masculine element to this rustic room.
Finely-woven Jute burlap upholsters these shapely chairs. When paired with the smoothness and softness of dark velvet cushions, the contrast brings a quiet but noticeable edge to the room that is still beautifully elegant. The bold elements of this room are echoed in the striped carpet and black decorative accents.
