Rope is one of the most fundamental, functional materials around. But in addition, it has great decorating potential. Whether it’s made from hemp, cotton, linen, coir, jute, straw or sisal, rope offers a near infinite range of creative possibilities of incorporating exceptional design detail to any area. It works especially well with coastal beach style, western style and diverse global style, but can look equally at home in pretty much any area where other items using natural substances set the tone.
