Layering rugs is a great way to add a little softness and texture to a room. Rug patterns and styles tend to change every couple of seasons too.
Right now berber & souk styles are the “it” styles, especially in black, white and gray, geometric, vaguely tribal patterns.
The great thing about layering rugs is that you can get a proper sized neutral rug that will outlast current trends and then add a pop of pattern with a smaller rug on top, and not bust the bank.
Plus, it just brings more dimension and comfort to your space.
