Kilim Rugs

After checking out Ace Hotel in Palm Springs in my previous posting, I noticed Commune's consistent use of kilims, not only in the hotel, but also in their other interior work. As seen above, Commune has transformed the kilims into a stair runner and as an ottoman.
Kilims are flat tapestry woven rugs produced from various countries, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, North Africa, Turkey and the Balkans - and they come in various patterns, designs and colours. I think they have been well used in the examples above - they bring a sense of worldliness and create a soft contrast to the modern and classic interiors.
