Decorating With Kilims

A room like this one accessorized with kilim pillows is absolutely beautiful.  The flatwoven carpets from Turkey are some of the most beautiful textiles, filled with pattern and vivd colors.  Today, kilim pillows are a new and exciting design trend.  Piling an eclectic mix of these Turkish beauties on a sofa or bed creates a patterned look with rich cultural details.

Just a few kilim cushions can be an important component in a room’s color palette.  With a variety of colors in each piece, kilim pillows can be used to tie a palette together, or add color to a space.  In this spare, white bedroom kilim pillows and colorful textiles are all the color this room needs.

The richly textured cushions are a great addition to modern spaces.  While the sofa and table in this living room are all about clean lines, kilim cushions added to the sofa bring soul to the room.

So, where can you get some of these beautiful pieces?  Well, I am always a proponent of packing a bag and traveling.  There is nothing more spectacular than planning a trip abroad where you can go and purchase items like these from local vendors and artisans.  But, if traveling to Turkey is not in the cards this year, I suggest paying a  visit to interior designer Kishani Perera’s shop, Rummage in Los Angeles.  Both on and offline, the shop sells beautiful kilims that you can bring into your interior to add color, texture, and beautiful handwoven patterns.  Here are few of my favorites:

This Russian Sumak Kilim Pillow is a little different than the rest.  It has more embroidery and delicate vintage details.  Explore more kilims at Rummage >
