Greater Nashville's Guide to Organic Area Rug Options

Have you ever thought about the fact that your carpet and rugs could be emitting gases that are harmful to your family and the development of your children? It is true; The chemicals involved in creating and dying synthetic carpet include:

-Petroleum bi-products

-Artificial dyes

-Anti-microbial treatments


-and MORE!

These can be harmful to your health through inhalation and absorption through the skin.

These facts encouraged us to let you know about Nashville's best organic area rug and carpet options to keep your family safe!

1) Wool

Sometimes considered the "healthiest" material, wool contains no synthetic material. It's gentle beauty creates no need for compromise, and the price is comparable to traditional rugs. In addition, wool is durable, a renewable resource and does not encourage proliferation of dust mites and other allergens, creating the perfect mix of attractive design and healthy living!

2) Bamboo

Yes! Bamboo, the long stalks of fast growing, panda eaten, material can be used for fabrics and rugs. Bamboo is a completely sustainable resource that produces a fiber product used in rug making. It is the most durable material available and is dirt and water resistant. That makes is practical and green.

3) Cotton

Cotton is a renewable resource used regularly in area rugs. Also containing no synthetic material, cotton is a great alternative to the traditional chemical filled carpeting options. The one thing to be aware of with cotten is that is does not dry quickly, so it is not great for highly humidity areas.

4) Natural Fibers

Natural fibers include the following:

- Hemp:

Hemp is very durable which makes it great for high- traffic areas in your home. It is easy to clean and can be vacuumed as normal.

- Jute:

Jute is the softest of all of the natural fibers and therefore is great for living rooms where you prefer a warmer, softer feel and design.


Seagrass is something most people have not heard of using in the home. It is a durable and textured natural fiber that is tightly woven to create a durable covering to larger areas in the home.


Sisal is a "scratchier" fiber that adds texture to the home. It is great for stairs and long hallways as it is a great look! We also find it goes well in corporate setting, like doctors office.

Donna Dean

When Donna Dean decided to open Foyers and Beyond Custom Flooring in 2009, she was leaning on more than 30 years of experience in the flooring business. Even though the economy was taking a big hit, she decided the time for entrepreneurship was then or never.

“It was a huge leap of faith, especially right in the middle of that stinking recession,” she said. “But I wanted to be my own boss, and knew I could do this.”

Bishop’s fast-talking, upbeat personality contributes to the type of store the she runs: a flooring boutique in downtown Franklin that caters to the individual’s interior design needs. The owner says she places a special emphasis on customer relations—in part because referrals are a large component of Foyers and Beyond’s success, but also because Bishop loves people.

“A big part of this business is working with designers and customer referrals,” she said. “I’m a people person, and I just love what I do.”

Foyers and Beyond offers a sweeping slate of services, including wall-to-wall carpet, hardwood, area rugs, tile, free in-home estimates and more. The company also owns a Franklin workroom that produces custom area rugs and runners for hallways and stairs.

Bishop holds a sisal rug with dark leather trim, a popular sample that rests on one of the brightly painted walls lined with display racks.

“We probably have 1,000 area rug samples that fall into every price point,” she said. “We also work with trims like wide cotton bindings, leather, surging and suede to produce in-house rugs. It’s our forte.”

Bishop says that since her opening, she’s made a point to carry unique products that customers might have seen in the glossy interior design publications.

“We offer wool and sisal products you don’t see at other flooring stores, like that New Zealand wool material behind you,” she said.

She points to a large blueprint covering a table, a “takeoff” she’s been working on for a customer.

“We use a blueprint and begin working within a budget to pick what flooring, paint and carpet should be used,” she said. “People are often surprised with what they can get within their budget. Just because I’m in downtown Franklin doesn’t mean I’m more expensive!”

Bishop also partners with local interior designers, contractors and custom homebuilders on projects.

“We’ve developed great relationships and referrals. It’s amazing how the local people make a point to support this little downtown square,” she said.

Bishop cultivates these relationships, welcoming anyone interested to take a seat on Foyers and Beyond’s Main Street bench. She can often be found sitting outside her store, surrounded by other small business owners and friends—and usually Herbert Dean, her 84-year-old father who visits every day.

“He’s sort of a fixture around here,” she said. “You know, a lot of people just come in here to talk. It’s a happy store. We love what we do, and I think that it shows.”

The Nashville native says one of the best parts of owning the business is the downtown merchants around her.

“In the last two-and-a-half years I’ve met local people who have become my dearest friends,” she said. “The relationships I’ve formed with the other merchants have been just incredible.”
