Cahier Rug

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

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′

Price: $3,150.00

Bursa Rumi Rug

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.

Pegboard Reversible Rug

Check it: reversible indoor/outdoor rug by Liora Mann. This techno felt rug is made using her patented Lamontage method, which layers and interlocks acrylic fibers by needlepunch. A little soap and water is all you need to clean.

UV-resistant, durable and antimicrobial.

Departures Rug

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.

$990.00-$4,285.00

Moooi Carpet Model 11

If you’re looking for a bit of black-and-white pattern (always a good choice) in a hallway or entryway, hopefully you’ve got enough money to drop some on this rug by Marcel Wanders.

Designed by Marcel Wanders for Moooi.
Made in the Netherlands.

If that price is too rich for your blood, might this black and white ‘contemporary’ rug suffice?

Do-Lo-Rez Carpet
