Eye-Catching Rug and Matching Slippers

I think most of you out there are fascinating by unusual ideas when it comes to interior design. And when those ideas become practical, the interest grows. This is the case with Tapistongs, a very cool rug from Lise El Sayed. I particularly like the texture of the material and the color which make this carpet a “must have”. Not only is it interesting and fun, but also modern and quite stylish. I can’t help wondering how would I “treat” the slippers if I were to own one of these. Because, even though they fit great next to the rug, I know I would be very tempted to wear them all the time, which would make them tear off way faster than the carpet itself. What do you think about this crazy idea?

    Beautiful! but you are totally right. Maybe it wouldn’t look so nice after 1 year of wearing those slippers out…

    I think the wearing out of the slippers would add to the aesthetic. It would make the rug a piece that is lived in rather than simply art to observe, and because every person walks differently, if multiple people wear them, each slipper would have a nice variation.

    Like so many people in Vancouver we prefer out guests to take off shoes at the door. What great idea. As a smaller set, say 4 ft by 4 ft, there is a natural market for up-scale real estate agents whose clients wasn those viewing to remove shoes.
