RECYCLED BELT RUGS



This rug is made out of vintage leather belts. Each Vintage Belt Floor Mat is a one-of-a-kind creation, and as such, colors and characteristics will vary slightly from those pictured.

ZIP RUG



The Bouroullec's have created an 'expandable' rug for Vitra comprised of zippered felt panels that enables users to aler the length, color and pattern.

RIVER BED PEBBLE MODERN RUG



This modern rug by 2Form design, Norway imitates natural stones as close as possible by means of color and shape. I have to mention that its made out of Merino wool.

LAMA FELT RUGS




Yvonne Laurysen from Lama designed these cool rugs – strips of thick felt that were assembled to make random patterns. Some even contains LED that makes the carpet shine.

PACHANAMA LEATHER RUGS




This beautiful circular genuine leather rug is just one of the many from Pachanama’s Living Collection.

ARCHIPEL CARPETS

FLOOR TO HEAVEN CARPET



This carpet by german label Floor to Heaven looks like being made of a big old oak tree. But indeed the carpet is made of wool with a wonderful fluffy touch.

GRAND GRAND SPLATCH RUG




This rug was designed with the idea to imitate an indoor pool with a concrete edge and a large splash effect but the only maintenance it requires is a good vacuuming every so often.

PUZZLE PERSER



Katrin Sonnleitner transformed the serious conventional Persian rug into something fun and whimsical. It is actually a jigsaw puzzle that ends up being a floor rug, the puzzle pieces are made from a mixture of synthetic and natural ribber. Definitely the only Persian rug that I will ever buy. I want one!


TAPETE
BAND AID




Ricardo Garza Marcos designed this tall and skinny rug to resemble a band aid. This rug will lift the mood of any space. It will also display fell in narrow hallways.

LAND CARPETS



Florian Pucher's Land Carpets are modern rugs inspired by nature and designed to look like aerial images of farmed landscapes. There are different carpet designs; each represents a different country and shows each’ unique farmed landscape. Each is hand-tufted from pure New Zealand wool.
