tip for unruly rugs

urban outfitters L | R
I've been looking for a sturdy rug for my entryway, and I've been really into dhurrie rugs. The problem with dhurries (like many flatweave/lightweight rugs) is that they slide around a lot and the corners tend to curl up. The sliding problem can be solved with a good rug pad, but what about the corners?

The May issue of Martha Stewart Living has a pretty ingenious solution for unruly rug corners: rulers!


It's a little ghetto, but who would look under the rug? And if anyone did, I'm sure they would be impressed with your ingenuity.

That's a great idea. If it's good enough for Martha, it's good enough for anyone! :)
