The same designer who brought us the Cutting Table No. 1 has now released this special edition of 10 Ísbjürn / Ice Bear Rugs. Playing with the ubiquitous animal skin rug idea, there’s part play and part serious commentary on luxury goods.
Purchase Information:Price: $3,100.00

The Rug Company recently joined RugMark, the foundation dedicated to ending child labor in the handmade carpet industry. If you’re not familiar with either you can follow a few links and find out that this is a very good thing, because a major player in the rug industry jumping on this particular boat signals a shift in industry standards of child-labor-free carpets.
The prices are a little higher, but the particular peace of mind of knowing that a rug is child-labor-free seems well worth saving up for…Plus, there’s some pretty intriguing designs by some kind-of-quirky designers that The Rug Company has up their sleeve…I’m kind of in love with some of the stranger ones, too many to show them all, but here’s a handful:
$32.50- $230.00 per square foot, from a 3’x5′ to a 18’x12′ (this means anywhere between $485.00 to $49,680.00(!))

Bring a rural feel to your urban environment with this rug by Permafrost.
“Designed in Norway, manufactured in Sweden, wool from New Zealand and inspired by a common image of rural America, the John Deere tractor. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.”

Hmm. This could be an interesting option if you’re fond of carpet tiles.
Look: Patterned tributes to the beloved Holstein. Dairy cow-sized spots in four colors on fields of white with subtle flecks. Touch: Plusher than a cowhide: a cut and loop combination gives it pleasant varied softness. Be Smart: Don’t run with the herd: spot markings on Stampede are irregularly placed and tiles are designed to be installed randomly for a hide-inspired abstract artwork for your floor. The Details: 19.7″ x 19.7″. 100% Nylon face fiber. Made in the USA. FLOR recommends installing tiles in either the same direction or a parquet style.
All tiles are 19.7″ x 19.7″
(For a 4’x6′ rug, it’d cost you about $176.00.)
Purchase Information:Price: $15.99

A cowhide dyed to look like a zebra seems a little wrong, but definitely not as wrong as an actual zebra hide (in my opinion). So if you’ve got to have the look, here’s an option.
“Cheer up a bland living room with a splash of stripes! This dramatic zebra pattern has been dyed onto a top grain cow hide to give you a high style look that won’t break the bank.”
approx 7′ x 5′
Purchase Information:Price: $575.00

Not a bad price for a rug/mat with such strong graphic stripes…
“A fresh take on a summer classic, our awning stripe rug features offset yarn-dyed stripes that have the look of pieced construction. Hand woven on a sturdy cotton weft, it’s richly colored and one of a kind.”
Available in Cherry, Clementine, Black, Ink Blue and Green Apple.
2 x 3′: $29.00
2.5 x 9′: $69.00
3 x 5′: $49.00
5 x 8′: $109.00
8 x 10′: $179.00
Purchase Information:Price: $29.00
