When more is more. Layering rugs is a smart, simple and affordable way to add interest and texture to a room.
My favourite way to layer rugs is to add colour – a small bright, patterned rug on top of a more affordable large Rebtex sisal or jute carpet is just the thing to brighten up a room (and much less of a commitment than buying a large Persian). There’s nothing prettier than a beautiful Moroccan or kilim rug over a large neutral coloured rug – the bottom rug provides beautiful texture and frames the more intricate top layer.
A cowhide rug on top of a sisal rug, or a sheepskin on top of a jute rug, or anything soft on top of a flat weave – these are also ways to add interest and texture, but in a more subtle but equally effective way.
