I’m going to open with a line I didn’t expect to ever write but here goes. Flooring just got a hell of a lot sexier. There, I said it. But let me take a moment to introduce the reason I made such a bold statement – welcome Kersaint Cobb, a British brand specialising in natural flooring ideas for the home and one that knows how to nail a room design.
The brand’s mission statement is simple – to travel the world from the comfort of your own home. How? With products sourced from around the globe, from soft wools to the jute, coir and sisal, Kersaint Cobb puts the focus on natural textures under foot.
Today I wanted to share five highlights from the brand’s collection and explain a little about why natural flooring might be worth considering next time your home needs a refresh.
If you’ve been on Pinterest in the last year, you’ll have heard of a material called Jute. Often found used in Californian-inspired room designs, Kersaint Cobb presents slender jute fibres into its flooring, which are both recyclable and biodegradable. Designed to give a calm feeling, this would be perfect in a bedroom, with linen bedding, and white-washed walls.
An organic, renewable fibre, wool flooring is as versatile as you want it to be. Warm and rich underfoot, the brand offers a varied selection of wool options, from pale naturals to statement stripes. Perfect for living spaces and bedrooms, this is the ultimate in cosy comfort for your home.
A pale and interesting choice, seagrass is spun and woven into the most natural flooring option Kersaint Cobb offers. Featuring a thin latex backing, the seagrass will age gracefully over time as the colour tone changes throughout its life. For a richer colour, choose fine seagrass which is harvested when the plant is younger resulting in a much more intense shade.
Crafted from the brown fibres of the coconut husk soaked in seawater, Coir is a robust and rustic flooring choice, which is both low maintenance and tactile. Designed to protect your floors from dirt, this resilient flooring alternative is ideal for hallways, mud-rooms and rugs.
Similar to that of Jute, Sisal is a practical and durable flooring choice. Natural fibres take on vegetable dyes effortlessly, resulting in both interesting colour blends or more solid finishes. Again, a biodegradable alternative, sisal is grown sustainably and is a slightly more hardwearing option to jute – perfect for areas of footfall such as the hallway or landing.
How many of these natural flooring alternatives were you aware of before today? With so much focus on the need for biodegradable materials in the media recently, it’s great to discover brands taking the environment into consideration, all the while helping you create a stylish home.
