Rugs that can live indoors or outside are what you should be thinking about, because what’s nicer than an outdoor seating area? An outdoor seating area with a rug, that’s what. Now, there are loads of outdoor area rugs that are available, and this one from Nani Marquina isn’t new, but it is still one of my favorites because it’s made from- you guessed it- recycled rubber bicycle tires. Each rug is made using 130 to 140 bicycle inner tubes, all collected and processed in India. Instead of ending up in a landfill, the hand-loomed inner tubes adds an interesting texture as well as a soft surface for your feet. It’s a win/win kind of product.
