The Layering Of Rugs
With fall around the corner, there will be lots of clothes-layering, but what about layering rugs? I'm not talking about sliding a no-slip pad under your throw rug, but, rather, purposefully taking two or more rugs and layering them for a dramatic yet haphazard effect. Sometimes these rugs are lined up and centered atop one another; sometimes the placement is all kinds of willy-nilly. Sometimes it gives a room that wild genie-in-a-bottle-sit-here-and-smoke-a-hookah-with-me effect, and sometimes it perfectly complements a mild-mannered room. Either way, layering rugs is a "thing" now. I think I like this thing. It gives rooms extra dimension, interest, and texture, right along with more comfort. And the trend, surprisingly, suits a number of home decor styles--not just bohemian, but also more traditional looks. See below...
Some of the best bets for layering rugs include:
- Cowhide rug over a jute (or other natural fiber) rug
- Zebra print over a natural fiber rug
- Flokati or other fur over neutral area rug
- Rugs of similar size overlapping one another
- Anything kinda threadbare but cool (a treasured old oriental, for instance) atop a sturdier neutral rug
- Layering a too-small but beloved rug over a larger rug
