PRODUCT IN FOCUS: Sisal Carpet and Rugs

Sisal carpet has always been a favourite at KWD, not only for its earthy and natural aesthetic, yet also for the fact that it is sustainably harvested and that its natural fibres are non toxic and have no off-gassing fumes that will irritate the eyes or throat. Sisal carpet is also extremely durable, lending itself to be the perfect option for high traffic areas.


The luxurious texture and natural colouring of sisal carpet and rugs adds an organic element to any space. We love the use of sisal rugs and carpets in coastal and rural spaces yet the versatility of this look means it can be used in any location, whether it is city, coast or country.


Round sisal rugs in intricate patterns can be a great way to add some subtle complexity to minimalist spaces. We adore how this sisal rug has been styled above with the effortless clash of natural and industrial elements.


There is a warmth that is brought to the office pictured above with the use of the large rectangle sisal rug. the pairing back of the woven baskets used for storage to the sisal rug also works well to create a natural feel in the office space.



Pictured in the two images above is a recent project completed by KWD, featuring KWD’s gorgeous herringbone natural sisal, in wall-to-wall carpet.  The material selected was perfect for this project, a coastal property, with a relaxed vibe.


However, our personal favourite at KWD is the use of sisal carpet as stair runners. We absolutely adore this staircase adorned by the geometrically patterned sisal carpet. This unique texture and pattern creates a statement out of this divine staircase and we are simply in love!  KWD has a large range of sisal wall-to-wall carpets and also sisal rugs in stock now.

KWD has grown from a team of two in 2013 to a dynamic group of ten professionals who all contribute to the successful consultancy we have created. Growing up in a family with a mother as an Interior Designer and a father as a successful Ceramic Tile Merchant, it's no wonder I entered the world of design. At Kate Walker Design (KWD), our primary focus is to specify, source and supply stone, tiles and all other hard finishes into projects across Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula, but also interstate and internationally. We embrace a consultative approach and develop lasting relationships with each and every client. It’s what the KWD team knows and loves. “Design is not a thing we do. It’s our way of life.” Kate Walker
