London based artist Alex Chinneck plays with opposing objects in the Concrete Rug for the Sculpture House.

Designed in collaboration with British illustrator Matthew Gaffen, Chinneck's Concrete Rug applies the scrolling motifs in traditional rug design to concrete housed in a smooth wooden frame. Made from 238 individual pieces, the three and a half by six foot design appears to transform concrete into a tactile material. Available for $2,666 at the Sculpture House

Although it isn't very cozy, the Concrete Rug is made to be walked on and the frame ensures it feels smooth underfoot.
