Try This Home Trend Now: Rug Layering
There’s no denying it. This décor trend is on the rise. One bold, floor-spanning piece is no longer enough. Instead? Overlap sisal, Oriental, or sea-grass numbers to add subtle depth to any space. Ready to start? Here, a few tips to help get you on your way.
Whether layering two or ten, allow 12 – 18 inches of space on all sides to expose the contrast between rugs.
Choose pieces with complementary color schemes.
Create a patchwork collage with dhurries in different patterns, like ikat or chevron.
In a large rectangular space, start with an inexpensive jute in a neutral hue. Then dress it up with smaller, color-rich rugs.
Overlap two or three vintage Oriental pieces to give any modern home a bohemian feel.
