Where did this trend come from, you might ask? Well, Kilims are part of a rich, centuries-old tradition of weaving in Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey.

Today, traditional Kilim rugs are having a comeback.

Kilims are handcrafted on small looms, so it can be arduous to find a super large area rug. Luckily, they look amazing mixed up and layered on top of each other. Lay down two or three complimentary rugs for a look that is beautiful and unique.
One of the appealing aspects of a Kilim rug is that all the different shades within the rug likely belong to a colour family, but they are never one flat colour. When layering your rugs, stick to similar tones, and play with patterns - this can be done and still look chic.
HANG IT ON THE WALL

Not all rugs have to go on the floor. For a beautiful handmade textile that you can’t bear to step or sit on, an exotic solution for your dreamy home is to give it a prime spot on a bare wall.
The right rug can work well hanging behind a sofa, above an entry bench, or above a bed as a makeshift headboard. Kilims, in particular, can be rich enough in pattern and colour to serve as a statement wherever you decide to place it.
Use vivid tones for a look that is ultra-boho, or try muted tones for a New Traditional look that will warm up the space. That’s the beauty of kilim: there’s something for everyone.
A BIT OF EVERYTHING
