Brand Spotlight: Chilewich

Starting off our brand highlights is a shop favorite, here to decorate your floor or your table: Chilewich!

Chilewich founder Sandy Chilewich. She and her husband run their business from NYC.

Founder and designer Sandy Chilewich used her interest in textiles to create Chilewich's unique placemats, rugs, and mats. Made from extruded vinyl yarn and featuring unique colors, patterns, and weaving techniques, this brand is the perfect example of practicality and aesthetics coming together. The vinyl material is a mix of everything you could want: easy to clean, bacteria and mold resistant, suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings, and good looking to boot! We're proud to stock their USA made shag rugs and mats, which use crush-resistant looped vinyl yarn, as well as placemats, which use woven terrastrand vinyl. And have we mentioned that all of Chilewich's rugs have a built-in nonstick backing?

Bold Stripe Shag Doormat in Punch - $55

Chilewich is also committed to eco-friendly practices, and have shown this commitment through continuous improvements to their production over the decades they've been in business. This ranges from completely replacing phthalates with a green alternative made from soybeans, to using recycled and renewable materials whenever possible. Not to mention, their durability means that you will need to buy fewer products over time, reducing consumption. 

What we love about Chilewich isn't just their durability and quality, but the classic, no-fuss designs that complement almost any style of home decor. Let's take a look at some of our favorites!

Skinny Stripe Shag Mat in Birch - starting from $55

This rug in beautiful neutral shades could add subtle warmth to your modern space just as easily as it could give a clean modern touch to a farmhouse or boho style. We account this versatility to the stripe pattern, which has just enough interest while still being light and airy. 

Bamboo Placemats in Dune - $15

The entire line of bamboo placemats is attractive to the eye, because who can resist the woven pattern that's both totally unique and not in-your-face? We love this tasteful Dune color for a modern farmhouse style, or going industrial with black cutlery!

Mini Basket Rectangle Table Mat in Chambray - $15

It's not just neutrals that Chilewich does well, but a range of classic colors, too! We love this chambray placemat for its blend of different shades of blue and gray that play with the fabric-like texture. This is sure to work for a dining room with lots of white, or as a way to bridge a mix of warm and cool toned decor. 

Breton Stripe Shag Mat in Gravel - Starting at $55

The Breton Strip has been a customer favorite, and we can see why! Just bold enough with thick horizontal stripes, this mat will give a graphic pop to your floors. We especially like this style for an entryway, hallway, or mudroom!

We're also able to custom-order Chilewich rugs in many combinations of size and style to suit anywhere you may need them! Come see our swatch book full of samples in-store or email us at for a quote. 

Chilewich is a showstopper when it comes to quality floor mats and placemats. We're proud to carry this USA made line in the shop and hope you love them as much as we do! Shop all Chilewich here.
