3 of the best outdoor rugs

Add an outdoor rug to create an inviting exterior space

A relative newcomer to the world of homes and gardens, outdoor rugs are proving incredibly popular. Commonly made from hardwearing fabrics, they can be left out for the whole summer, are comfortable under foot and can make add an inviting loungey element to an outdoor space.

We’ve tracked down three of the best outdoor rug suppliers.


This Safari Weave Classic
herringbone rug adds a muted elegance to an outdoor space and is well suited to contemporary gardens. It’s made from recycled PET fibre by artisan workers in India and is available from Northwood Home at £255.

Dash & Albert

Very popular in the states, American designers, Dash & Albert are strong
contenders when it comes to outdoor rugs. We love their use of colour in this fruity lollypop fresh ‘Happy
Yellow’ Woven Rug, made from the ever reliable polypropylene and able to withstand
high foot traffic areas. Available in three sizes from Cuckooland, starting at £129.

Fab Habitat

Offering great value at £49.95, the Santa Cruz rug has a carry handle for beach days and park picnics. Made from handwoven recycled
materials, waterproof and wipe clean, the emphasis of Fab Habitat is recycled materials, organic dyes, and natural fibres with low carbon footprints. Available at Cuckooland.
