Chilewich Shag, Design Within Reach; outdoor mat, Canadian Tire
Decorating your outdoor space doesn’t just end with a bbq and some garden furniture. These days, outdoor spaces are treated more like outdoor rooms, with designers striving to create outdoor versions of traditionally indoor decor -- such as rugs. A rug is one the best ways to cozy up a space, and the new generation of outdoor mats seems to be just the answer.
The Chilewich Shag by Sandy Chilewich for Design Within Reach, is made with tufted vinyl, a flexible and plush pile and super soft hand that is still ideal for high-traffic outdoor spaces. Stain, mold and mildew resistant, this 60”L x 36”W mat is priced at $150.00 USD and comes in various colours. To extend its life even more, you can easily move into your bathroom come wintertime.
Alternatively, Canadian Tire carries a collection of bright outdoor mats that are made with 100% polypropylene, and are fade, water and stain resistant. At only $19.99 for a 72”L x 36”W mat, you can’t go wrong!
