I’m totally a sucker for ebay kilims.
I nervously auctioned my way to winning another rug on ebay with the intent of sticking it in the kitchen. It fits at 10′ x 4′ and is definitely lovely for $22.50.
When I saw it on ebay I thought the pale aqua color and the subtle geometric pattern would pick up the color in my nutty turquoise counter tops. Surprisingly the dark brown geometric pattern creates a great frame against the dark floors…I was a little worried about mixing the dark brown and black. Overall it gives a nice layer of texture to the kitchen which has recently started to feel a little too atomic kitsch and not as modernist snazzy as I’d like.
This rug seems to be of better quality than the one in the bedroom. Its a bit thicker and way less rough…although I’m really not sure how these things should feel.
I might have kilim mania. I still really want a few more to throw around the house.
I wonder how many is too many?
