Not Your Pottery Barn / Crate & Barrel Sisal Rug

One of our goals at Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets is to offer items that you will not see everywhere. And certainly not in stores such as Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn or Williams & Sonoma Home.   In order to do this, we work with lots of different suppliers.  This is especially true in the fabrication of our sisal and natural fiber area rugs.  We have eight different sources for sisal, jute, abaca, seagrass and natural fiber blends.  Some of the fibers here offer a blend of sisal, jute and polypropelyne.  You may also notice, that we found the same source for sisal as those offered in the Lauren Ralph Lauren collection.  The difference is that the rugs designed by Ralph Lauren are offered in standard sizes and are “self” bordered.  With  this collection, we can offer both custom sizes and custom fabricated border treatments.

If you like leather, our showroom offers well over 100’s different leather border options including textured, embossed, smooth, distressed and more.  Our color pallet is beyond compare.  In addition, we also offer Sunbrella fabric, cotton, linen, suede, animal print, printed fabric, tapestry and jute bindings.




Fabric Bordered Indoor Outdoor Area Rugs

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets offers six choices of indoor / outdoor carpet for the field complimented by over 60 UV rated Sunbrella fabrics. The range includes 30 solid fabric options in addition to great patterned fabrics. Shown below are some examples. We can even fabricate these rugs with double and triple borders. Thus, you can have a pattern fabric on the exterior with a solid color interior border. These rugs can be made up to 13′ wide by any length.

How to Measure for a Rug

Selecting a Size

How do you determine the correct size rug for your space? It is not an exact science. The type of room and furniture placement should factor into your decision. We suggest leaving an equal amount of flooring exposed on all sides of the room. The first step is always to measure the space using a tape measure. One of the most common mistakes is to rely on a visual or ‘eyeball’ the space. A 6×9 rug can look very differently hanging on a rack. To make it easy, use our room planner!
Dining & Breakfast rooms

* When selecting a room size rug for the dining room, you need to measure the length and width of your table. Don’t forget to include the table leaf if you use it frequently.
* We recommend leaving enough space so the back legs of the dining room chairs can be placed on the rug. This will avoid chair legs getting caught on the edge of the rug when guests are pushing their chairs in and out.

Living or Family room

* We recommend selecting a size that allows each piece of furniture to be completely on or off the rug. The exception to this rule is a sofa, it is common for the back legs of a sofa to hang off the rug.
* Make sure to account for any heating vents or doorways.
* Depending on the usage of the room, you may want to consider traffic patterns.
* If there’s a hearth in the room, consider purchasing another small rug for placement in front of the fireplace.
* Coordinate the size of the rug with the size of your coffee table.
* An 8×11 rug brings together most furniture groupings nicely.


* When measuring for a bedroom, you must first determine if you prefer one room size rug or several rugs around the bed.
* When considering one room size rug it should be large enough for you to take a step or two when getting out of bed.
* If you have one bed centered in the room, you can place a rug at the foot of the bed and one on each side. If you have two beds in the room, you can add one more rug in between them.
* This is the perfect place to play around with rug sizes- Try a round rug or a rectangular rug placed at a diagonal underneath the bed.

Entry Way

* Consider a material that can handle the high traffic areas.
* Make sure the door can open and close over the rug. Consider the thickness or pile height of the room.
* If it’s a long hallway, you can also consider using two 5 ft runners.
