Rugs That Add A Jolt of Electricity to A Room


There are statement-making pieces, and then there are items that add an actual jolt of electricity to a room. I classify most of the Rug Company’s goods as the latter. The London-based retailer’s designer collaborations are always top-notch, with fashion notables including Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and Matthew Williamson, interiors superstar Kelly Wearstler, and artists like Eva Zeisel all taking a stab at creating designs for below the toes, each with wildly successful results.

Honestly, I’d be hard-pressed to walk on any of these beauties. Luckily though, they have a selection of wall hangings and cushions too. The prices are pretty outrageous (everything’s made by hand to meticulously strict standards), but if I had an extra grand here or there I might have to buy this giant flamingo.

Why? Well, when it comes to giant flamingos, does one ever really need a reason?

You don’t have to head across the pond to see the Rug Company’s luxurious destined-to-be-heirlooms in person; stop over at their L.A. studio on Melrose for a look.
