Persian Explosion Rug (a.k.a Modello Rug)

Persian Explosion Rug (a.k.a Modello Rug)
 

Huh? I saw this on Core77 and put an email in to Studio Mango to see when it might be available to buy online, and surprise, surprise, it already is. However, take a look at the price (and retailer). What does this affordability mean? Is the quality maybe not so great? Someone please shed light on this strange occurrence. I get that the material is not wool, so sure, that affects the cost, but I’m not used to a 5’x8′ being under $300. I’m confused and concerned. I’ve been assured that the crazy affordable price is due to the retailer buying up a large amount of the rugs, thereby passing on the savings to all of us lucky ducks. Forgive my original skepticism.

The Persian carpet is a product which has been around for centuries if not a millennium, a product with great tradition and heritage. Never the less its appeal has been decreasing, many young people consider it to be an object for grannys house. So Studio Mango decided to grab the rug and update it to be ready for the year 2010 without losing touch of its original origin and heritage. A collection of 6 different models and sizes has been taken into production by Umbra.
