Past & present

June 9, 2011

I found a lot of kilim rugs caught my eye whilst we were abroad, kilim patchwork rugs also. But while there's nothing quite like an original kilim, I do like the gathered, heirloom feel of patchwork and the idea of piecing together the past to serve the present.

Images found via Trendey, Remodelista, Pinterest, The Design Files.

Those are pretty fantastic rugs... I also wanted to share this website I came across that I think is up your alley, in case you haven't heard of it yet. It's called The Glow.

we bought the most amazing kilim (and a carpet too - so much fun!) in turkey - can't wait to get home and start using it!

Part of me is tempted to chop up my kilims and turn them into patchwork - I love these so much!
