Founder of Eclec­tic Moroc­can Liv­ing, Kevin Gold­man shares his thoughts on how to keep Moroc­can rugs in top con­di­tion.

“On a mi­cro level, dirt shreds the fi­bres of the rug and causes it to de­gen­er­ate over time. So the longer the dirt is left in the rug, the deeper it be­comes em­bed­ded, which ex­po­nen­tially in­creases the dam­age,” ex­plains Kevin. He also rec­om­mends that home­own­ers shake out their rugs at least once a week.

H&D: How would you work mul­ti­ple rugs into a sin­gle room? K:

There are var­i­ous ways to in­cor­po­rate mul­ti­ple rugs into a room. This in­cludes mix­ing rugs with dif­fer­ent textures and se­lect­ing rugs of the same colour fam­ily to unify the space. Use a mix of large-scale de­signs with small prints to vary the pat­terns °É’ÐÞÛÐކ霘 °ÉéÐ † ÞÐÐÈʨˈ

“Take note of your fur­ni­ture lay­out be­fore buy­ing a rug. It’s ex­tremely im­por­tant to get a rug of the cor­rect size. The trick is to en­sure that the rug fits un­der each of the main fur­ni­ture pieces you have in a room. It should at least pro­vide cov­er­age for the front legs of both your sofa and sin­gle seaters,” says Kevin.
