Guest Picks: Kilim Crazy
Etsy is a treasure trove when it comes to finding true vintage kilims, especially rugs. I love the nubby texture of this gorgeous one.
I am totally feeling the stark contrast in this gorgeous flat-weave from Calypso. Neutral yet striking, this rug would really make an impact in a room.
These cloth napkins from World Market certainly have a kilim rug feel to them.
I love the fresh colors in this fab rug from Fab.
In the alternate universe where I possess an inkling of upholstery skills, I'd snatch up some of this yummy kilim-inspired fabric from Forsyth and bring it!
These delectable throw pillows from Target, in both the red and yellow colorways, are so lovely.
I love this kilim-inspired bedding set. And I always love Target's price points.
This funky, modern, monochrome twist on the traditional kilim is just lovely. It's neutral enough that it could work in so many rooms.
I love the colors and stripe-like pattern in this flat-weave kilim rug.
This gorgeous global patchwork pouf from Horchow is absolutely divine.
I love the deep berry tones in this beauty from Horchow.
I'm dying over the calm and muted colorway in this kilim settee. I see so many rooms with these pale spa-like blues and greens, and how beautiful would this be at the end of a master bed?
I had to do the conversion on the Euro for this piece from My World Bazaar, and you might consider $3,200 for a love seat a little steep, but the inspiration is priceless! Someone with a little bit of upholstery skill (not me) could achieve this look on a vintage piece. It's really so striking.
Poufs are everywhere right now. They're so versatile, whether for extra seating or propping up your feet. I love this kilim-upholstered beauty from Target.
Grandin Road also carries a full line of kilim throw pillows, which are great for mixing and matching. They're so rich and textural.
I've only recently discovered Grandin Road, and what a fun store! I love this ottoman upholstered in a cool kilim.
If there's a trend out there, you can always count on Urban Outfitters to have a bright, fun, funky take on it. I love this kilim-inspired flat-weave rug. The colors are just to-die-for! I'm actually considering this option as a wall hanging in my kids' playroom.
I'm am crazy in love with this adorable Mirza chair from World Market! It's upholstered in a bright kilim-inspired fabric, and those turned legs aren't too shabby either.
Of course, the most instinctive way to introduce some kilim into your home is with a gorgeous kilim area rug. The muted colorway and tribal motif on this reasonably priced option from Overstock are classic.
Etsy is also a great source for awesome fabrics, like this gorgeous chenille that comes directly from Turkey. I love the pop of turquoise it would bring to any space.Next: The Beauty of Contrast: Traditional Rugs in Contemporary Spaces
