They have such a casual, almost beachy feel, but can fit in with almost any decor.
Almost every living room inspiration photo I have features a jute rug. Don't believe me? Check out my living room board on Pinterest.

PS - In case you ever need to ship a giant rug....
Use drawstring trashbags and cut a hole in the bottom. Don't but holes in the bags that go on the two ends. Thread the rug through the holes, overlapping trash bags. Tie tightly, slap on some tape, and send!
