Make the outdoors feel like a refuge with the perfect outdoor area rug

Now more than ever it’s important that our homes feel like a refuge. Often outdoor spaces can end up neglected, but those spaces can be the most important in helping us relax and unwind. Spending more time in nature has been shown to reduce stress and increase immunity by boosting vitamin D. The more comfortable and polished your space is the more likely you are to prioritize spending time there. 

The right furniture is only the first step to completing your outdoor oasis. A well designed space is never complete without the right rug, pillows and accents. These elements add color and pattern, which create rhythm and harmony within your space and move the eye from one area to another, welcoming you in.

This makes finding the right rug all the more important.

Modern rugs can be a simple way to add color and texture to your backyard. They can also help protect your deck from sun damage or our crazy Seattle weather. Outdoor rugs are made to be fade resistant and easy to clean, making them a great choice for wooden decks. Outdoor textiles have come a long way over the years and our outdoor spaces are often second living rooms. Not only does a designer rug complete your look it makes the space more comfortable for bare feet enhancing the relaxed atmosphere of the space.

All Mafi outdoor rug collections are exclusively available at Seldens in Tacoma, Bellevue and Olympia. Our designers are here to help you perfect your patio from the ground up to the canopy.
