WHAT PLACE FOR A TRIBAL RUG WITHIN A ROOM ?

 

For what regards the place adapted for rugs within a room, some rules to respect exist in order to create harmony between the rug, the surface area and the other furniture.

 

In a first place, it is better if the rug’s total surface is not superior to a quarter of the room’s size. However, it doesn’t really matter if it is a little bit larger because it will have the effect of “upsizing” the room which will look bigger.

RUGS’ HISTORY

 

Rugs’ history is very old and present in an enormous variety of different cultures. They took multiple shapes during history and have been decorated with many patterns, sometimes standing for some important life messages. Still today, some cultures are trying to renew with this ancestral knowledge often transmitted from mother to daughter. Especially some particular villages are marked by an important tradition and are even today really famous for their rugs.Today, one of the most imitated and trendy rug is the Kilim.

 

This tribal rug has its origin from different regions of the world, from the Balkans, crossing over Turkey to the Middle East. These rugs have been conceived in the same way and are thus all qualified of Kilim rugs. In the Turkish language, this name signifies “flatweave technique” since indeed, what characterizes Kilim rugs is a particular method called “flatweave”. They are thus not very thick and light and can be easily used as ornaments. 

 

They are also characterized by unique patterns that differ depending on tribes or groups of people they represent: often these patterns are geometrical forms such as diamonds, which appear in Moroccan Kilims. By the way, different types of Kilim exist and differ thanks to colours and patterns: 

 

-Kilim rugs have specific geometrical forms such as flower patterns or arabesques which are very seldom in other Kilims.

-The Azilal rug is colourful and have vibrant shades of colours.

-Two colours characterize the Beni Ourain rug: black and white. It is the most prestigious rug in Morocco.

-The Boucherouite rug: this rug is characterized by many shades of natural colours.

-The Pirot rug is originated from the Serbian town Pirot and is thus the most famous rug of Europe. Often colourful, it represents symbols with specific significations such as good health or love.

 

Furthermore, some other famous tribal rugs exist such as the Persian carpet. Very trendy, they fit any type of decoration and bring an exotic touch. Some other rugs are from Asia as for example the Nepalese carpet made from Himalayan’s mountains’ goat wool.
