In the past when we've featured layered rugs of different patterns and textures, the response has most definitely been mixed. But what do you think of using several of the same small rugs to create one uniform, larger version?

This is a great solution if you're trying to cover an area with unique dimensions. Get a few inexpensive, small rugs (we think these are an old style from Ikea) and layer them up to fit the space. The thinner the better, so as to minimize the chance of tripping on the overlapping edges. The crisscrossing bright yellow stripes used in this room styled by Margot Austin add such a cheerful touch to the space, don't you think?
