The difference a rug can make in a room is pretty remarkable: softening hardwood, bringing in a bit of a pattern or color, truly tying things together underfoot. San Francisco-based designer Melina Raissnia uses an ancient Iranian felting technique to create her collection, and her website—and Hayes Valley shop, if you're in the Bay Area—displays a great range of rugs. We're quite fond of Fuller and its nod to Bucky's geodesics.
We cannot tell a lie.... We love, love, love this rug. It's almost to impossible to believe that each mini sphere was hand-felted and individually strung, but that too is the gosh-honest truth. It's just about as cheerful a floor covering as you could possibly find.
This hand-felted, hand-sewn rug from Odegard is made from 100% recycled strips of wool, with a style inspired by traditional artisan craftwork. As it's able to be bought by the square foot, you can accent a spot in the living room or fill your floor with a larger piece. To order, call 800.670.8836 or email info (at) odegardinc (dot) com.
The Studio Collection is The Rug Company’s first “entry-level” line. The range of handmade cotton dhurries is reasonably priced and available in 18 color-saturated prints.
Like high style confetti or graphic color pixels, this ultra-soft felt carpet by Merben is made of spherical felt pieces woven together artfully in a vibrant spectrum of shades. These whimsical, one-of-a-kind floor coverings add instant pop to any room.
A mixture of neutrally toned felt "pebbles" comprises this plush rug that comes in two sizes: 3' x 5' and 5' x 8'.
Designer Jennifer Morla applied abstracted typefaces to cut and layered industrial felt for these made-to-order rugs that soak up sound. theworkshopresidence.com
