Design Daily: Coyuchi Accent Rugs


Kilim might be having a moment, but I’m a little more obsessed with dhurrie. The flat-woven floor coverings originated in the Indian subcontinent, but everyone from John Robshaw to The Rug Company has gotten into the game. Now, California’s own eco-friendly textile darling, Coyuchi (founded 20 years ago in Point Reyes Station) launches a vibrant new line of dhurrie accent rugs. 


Traditionally woven on looms, dhurries are thick textiles that are often characterized by blocky, macro patterns. Coyuchi’s bright designs are true to that spirit, but lighten the carpets with smaller patterns and bright color combinations. My favorite is the undulating Wave rug in Tangerine and Charcoal, which has a chunky weave and would look amazing layered among a pile of rugs.

The new line of accent rugs are predominantly for the bath—many patterns are available only in 2×3-foot sizes—but some of the styles, including the Wave rug, are available in 3×5- and 5×7-foot sizes as well. True to Coyuchi’s foundation as a natural textiles firm, the rugs are made from organic cotton and free of chemical dyes and bleaches. The eco-friendly rugs are no-brainers in a kids room, but I love these for any room in the house. 


The new line hit stores in early October, and is available from a slew of California retailers. San Francisco residents can head to Aldea Home in San Francisco’s Mission District or Sprout San Francisco. Terramor Organic Home in Santa Barbara and Beginnings in Los Angeles also carry the Coyuchi Line.
