An emerging interior design trend for displaying rugs on walls is elevating the humble rug to an ‘objet d’art’. A recent survey conducted by The Rug Seller showed that Pinterest searches for statement rugs rocketed by 236% in 2018. A decorative rug can transform a room and styles like oriental rugs can also be a canny investment, depreciating in value much more slowly than other home accessories. Rugs are becoming less of a finishing touch and more of an investment or talking point within a room. Using rugs as wall hangings can also introduce three-dimensional form and tactile surfaces to walls.
