ry something different as you mount your rugs. In these two rugs I mounted them on masonite boxes, that stand about 1.75 inches of the wall. I just glued them down on the bases and painted the edges black. I wanted the rugs to look more modern, like canvases, and it worked. Framing rugs can be very trick. I think you have to find the way that suits the rugs, or leave it alone. I like rugs unframed, but sometimes I like to change things up a bit. The mounting of these pieces added alot to the contemporary design of the rugs. They are called Lavender after the Rain, and it is raining good and hard here today after a lonf dry summer.
