rug is a piece of art. As such, it can make a stunning addition to your wall.
Before you grab the nearest dhurrie, however, there are a few rules to follow.
To perfect the look, your chosen rug needs to be luxurious (no flimsy
floorcoverings), but the pile cannot be too heavy either. Then, of course,
there are the practicalities to consider. Framing expert John Jones warns that
it is important to provide proper support for your rug to ensure that it hangs
as evenly as possible. ‘Typically this is done by stitching the rug to a
secondary textile layer that can be attached to a frame,’ says Jones. For a
firm structure, secure your rug to wooden batons that are screwed into your
wall. Also, be careful not to hang your rug in direct sunlight: it will bleach
the subtle vegetable dyes and can ruin an heirloom piece.
