Verse Rug

For anyone who liked the Manuscrit Rug we posted a while ago, this one is similar in style, but at a much lower price point. Sure, it doesn’t have the detailing or the nice story behind it, but when you’re on a budget sometimes saving money wins out.

“Ink black esoteric prose scrawls oversized in contrast on ivory. Soft primo 100% bikaner wool is hand-tufted, then bound by hand on each side for extra durability.”

Dan Golden Rugs

If you appreciate any sort of humor, then you might just be into the new collection of rugs from Dan Golden. All are based on Golden’s artwork- take a look, I swear you’ll be pleased with the results.

(Also worth noting: the company’s mission statement says that they take great measures to make their products in the most environmentally and socially responsible way… with every purchase, a sheep is adopted from Oxfam and given to a family in a developing nation to provide income from wool for textiles. Not sure if this will influence your purchasing decisions, but it should.)

Vintage Belt Floor Mat

Belts made into a rug, huh? Sure enough, it does seem to take the look of a worn wooden floor and it would definitely be a unique addition to your home.

“This handsome, handmade floor mat is made of artfully assembled vintage leather belts that have been rescued on their way from waist to waste. Its rich tones, textures, and tread-friendly patina evoke the look of a wonderfully worn wood floor, albeit with a decidedly warmer under-foot feel. Each Vintage Belt Floor Mat is a one-of-a-kind creation, and as such, colors and characteristics will vary slightly from those pictured.”

This rug is pretty stunning for its texture and depth (and also for the price tag, so be prepared).

“These flower shaped pieces of felt gives this carpet a beautiful appearance. Its surface is full of constant movement and volume. It is a modern rug which asks to be touched, caressed, experienced. It is truly unique and each rug is intricately handmade using a hand loomed technique.
The Little field of Flowers rug is available in three different colour combinations and two sizes. It is durable as it is hand made and knotted to perfection.”

Love Will Tear Us Apart Lounge Rug

There’s something to be said for rugs that definitely qualify as ‘untraditional’. The drawn-like image gives interest without too much of a pattern…

“These wool rugs offer rich style in thick 100% handtufted New Zealand wool. New Zealand wool is the best available due to its high lanolin content…Special hand carving and combination cut and loop pile is very unusual craftmanship. The surfaces are soft and thick, making these rugs indulgently luxurious and sophisticated. They’re constructed with care by hand, meeting the highest standards for construction and quality. The distinctive contemporary rugs from HZL lead today’s decorating trends with their saturated hues and solid combinations.”

flying carpet

I’m reposting this because I found an inexpensive source. I’m also reposting it just because I really love it.

If you’re going for the whole Eddie Murphy* aesthetic, may I recommend this flying carpet rug?

*It is reported that when Eddie first hit it big, he furnished his home only with white carpets–no furniture.

“A life at ground level, a soft and relaxing topography, a domestic oasis, carpets that fly! Flying Carpet is more than just a simple carpet. Its topography turns it into a comfortable and amusing three-dimensional space to sit, stretch and relax, either in domestic or public areas. Any of its corners can be lifted by wedges covered in natural grey felt.

Wedge is constructed of expanded polystyrene and covered with 100% wool felt. Sold separately.”

Small Wedge: 42W x 42D x 13H

Big Wedge: 55W x 55D x 21H

Rondo Wool/Cotton Rug

Dhurrie rugs (more of a flat, tight weave) are really quite durable and not nearly as expensive as most wool pile rugs. These have a nice pattern and would be an easy and affordable way to change the look of a living room or hallway.
