vintage moroccan rug chair

Speaking of moments with furniture, here’s one last piece I’m having a hard time letting go. Anthropologie has a series of chairs online right now that are covered in insanely gorgeous vintage Moroccan rugs. As much as I love these rugs on the floor, when I finally got one and used it, I realized how quickly they get dirty and have to be cleaned (which is pretty pricey) because of all the strips of fabric. They seem to catch every bit of debris in my apartment, and no matter how much I shake them out, they still need a professional cleaning. I hate the idea of giving up on them, so maybe re-imagining them as upholstery is a better idea. Each of these chairs uses different rugs as upholstery and a sleek metal base as the support. If you’ve got a small rug in this style like I do, maybe this would be a good jumping-off idea for trying your own DIY version? I’d love to try this on a simple inexpensive ottoman . . . xo, grace

Anthropologie has loads of inspiration. This is a great ideas for the rugs. I love them on the chair. Lots of colorful fun. And sort of soft and furry friend to nestle in.


i bought a few of these rugs in morocco. they are the best because you can throw them in the washer and dryer.
i have a smaller rug that i can wash in my washer/dryer at home and i just bring the larger one to the laundry mat. super cheap!
