- I'm just back from Paris, and still processing all the exciting new furnishings, accessories, and objets I spied at Maison & Objet over the weekend.
Just hearing the word 'macrame' might evoke visions of groovy hemp wall decor and tasseled hanging plant holders, but not all knotty work is rooted in retro kitsch. Home decor ace Jonathan Adler has sophisticated the craft, and his jute rug is handwoven in an organic pattern that would add a nice bit of texture to a hardwood floor.
While it is certainly not a sofa, pendant, kitchen remodel, or generally any kind of big ticket item you scrimp and save and lust for, a doormat is one of the first little touches you—and your guests—see before setting foot inside your home. Make that first step a good one with this lovely floral outdoor floor cover, hand-woven in India from coconut husk fibers.
- "That rug really tied the room together," says Walter Sobchak in the Big Lebowski.
