Kilims absolutely rank among my favorite rugs. The flat-woven carpets are perfect for any space. Just one can make a statement under a table, or you can layer three or four kilim area rugs to create a unique patterned grid in a living area. With roots that span from the Balkans to Pakistan, you can find kilims infused with unique cultural patterns and color palettes. Whether you have a desire to bring global style home, or if you’re looking for something with rich color and pattern, look no further than these hand-woven carpets.
