Kilim Rugs

I fell in love with Kilim rugs when I started seeing them starring in several of the beautiful homes I've featured, and I vow to have at least one in our own home by the end of this year. The one below is one of my favourites from Loom in Melbourne.

The word 'kilim' describes a hand-woven rug with a smooth surface and no pile (as opposed to Persian rugs). Famous for their rich colours, warm tones, and beautiful geometric designs, each kilim is unique - even with new production, no two are identical. The Greeks, Romans, Armenians, Kurds, Assyrian and Turkic people have all contributed to kilim history, and now you will find them in many Western homes, looking fabulous and adding a touch of boho.
