Piece It Together

Sometimes one rug just won't do — not when you can add several in the same pattern and color family to fill a room with a sense of place. Consider layering kilims to anchor large pieces of furniture. "The idea was to make a big patchwork collage out of different kilims for a playful and nonchalant effect," says photographer Mieke Tacken.

Do know, however, when to edit your rug design to avoid the unkempt or "Ali Baba's tent" look, recommends designer Don Raney of Civility Design, Chicago. Try Orientals lined down hallways for a similar effect. Photo courtesy of ICE.
