Rug fragments ...

Every thrift store and consignment shop visit includes a thorough scanning for rug remnants. From estate sales to flea markets, I keep a lookout for old woven rugs and fragments that could be used for future decorating projects.

Talk about indestructable! Old tribal kilim rug remnants have been sewn together and used to reupholster a sofa with a unique style.

I think kilim rug fragments are getting harder to find simply because they are in high demand as pillow covers.

Practicality and durability are hallmarks of woven rugs, so it's no surprise that chairs and benches are sporting remnants as family friendly textiles.

I might not be brave enough to try it, but look at how clever homeowners have joined rug pieces together for a colorful flooring option.

Above, joined pieces make a one-of-a-kind stair runner (via photographer Corey Walter) and even a dramatic window shade (via Perch, New Orleans). Brilliant work by these rug revolutionaries, wouldn't you say?
