Gwen McAuley's Durable Doormat

A classic basketweave pattern makes a great first impression.

H&H.com's associate editor Gwen McAuley is sticking to items she actually needs. "I've been on the hunt for a hard-wearing indoor/outdoor mat for a while now, but most of the patterns make me cringe," she says. "This West Elm coir rug is woven from coconut husks, and the chunky weave stands out from the plain versions out there."
