Advice needed: I bought a beautiful red 7'x10' kilim on a trip to Istanbul this summer to put on the cream-colored wall-to-wall carpet in my living room. It's under an open glass coffee table and looks gorgeous--gives the room a whole new look. But (1) because kilims are thin, the edges are always puckering or turning up. Past experience indicates that rug grips--those plastic net things--don't work well for keeping an area rug in place on a carpet, only on a bare floor. (2) Also, I worry about its being on top of a thick berber carpet under a coffee table with heavy iron feet that press into the kilim and may damage it over time.
