Earlier this month, the new rug collection by Bunny Williams for Dash & Albert arrived in Boston and took up residence at Hudson. The South End home design boutique is the only Boston retailer to carry all 36 colorful, cheery indoor-outdoor rugs inspired by Bunny Williams’ extensive travels. As you begin thinking about your outdoor spaces and summertime entertaining, a rug is a great way to make a space more inviting.

If you’re looking for a rug that can withstand a beating, an indoor/outdoor rug is a great way “to decorate and make rooms both attractive and practical,” says Williams.

Most of Williams’ rugs boast easy maintenance, and they’re all made of natural jute fibers. While other natural fibers such as bamboo and seagrass are sturdy, they can also be coarse. Jute is softer; you’ve seen it before in another form, burlap. Don’t be deterred, on her site, Williams says the rugs “used to be scratchy and brittle but now, they really have a wonderful hand.”

She offers up ample options including geometric patterns, stripes, and plaids that come in a variety of colors. Choose from six sizes for all sorts of spaces. Dress up an entryway with a small throw (2’ x 3’), anchor a sitting area with a larger version (5’ x 14’), or brighten-up narrow spaces with a runner (2.5’ x 8’).

See the complete collection at Hudson, 12 Union Park Street, Boston, MA. Price: $73-$1,637. Info: 617-292-0900, hudsonboston.com.
