Originally spotted in The World of Interiors, this Cahier Rug would definitely give a room a graph paper-ish feel, which I’m guessing most of us would appreciate.
Designed by Alberto Artesani
(Note: If you had this rug, you might have to sip your tea/coffee from a Graph Paper Mug while boxing up a package with some Check Notebook Tape. Oh, and you’d also have to get an Agnes Martin Print.)

Hexagonal. Modular. Felt. Rug. I’m sort of speechless. There’s not a lot of background info on this whole series (there’s vases and bowls too that I’ll post separately), but apparently Portland designer Aurelie Tu works with women at the YWCA in order to create these handmade pieces. If the rug is a bit high for your price range, there’s equally impressive table runners: Interlocked Rounded Runner and Felt Offset Runner.
colors: snow white, cloud light grey, charcoal, orange mango, sunflower yellow and apple green.
Size: 4.5′ x 7′
Purchase Information:Price: $3,150.00

This lovely wool and silk rug has a warm gold and red color scheme with just enough pattern to make a room interesting. The simple design on a otherwise flat background has an updated feel to it, and the red/gold almost reads as a neutral because the contrast is somewhat subtle. It’s the sort of piece that would work well with modern or traditional furnishings, which is always a good sign when you’re considering spending a good amount of money.

If you’re continually hopping about from one destination to another, maybe this rug is for you. Even if you’re not a jetsetter, the cursive white writing on the black background makes for an interesting focal point.

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 granny´s 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.
Designed by Studio Mango for Umbra

If you had this in a hallway, wouldn’t you be tempted to see how far you could jump? Or would you just wear out your kids (or guests) by suggesting it? Note: a non-slip rug pad would be needed to make sure no accidents occurred.

Either of these two rugs certainly have enough character to carry a room. The texture, color and pattern all combine into a quirky rug that (in my opinion) further proves Patricia Urquiola’s ability to stretch creativity within the home. These two rugs sort of remind me of woolen scarves, but in the absolute best possible way.
Designer: Patricia Urquiola
Materials: Yarn composition: 100% new wool.
