Tapistongs comes from Lise El Sayed and is a lovely rug that can fit wonderfully in a modern living room. Its originality comes from the fact that the rug is not whole, but has four footprints where the two matching pairs of slippers should be. When we first featured this post on Freshome, we raised a topic for discussion. Even though the odd shoes look great next to the rug, the are unlikely to stay there all the time. And if the owners of this rug wear the slippers constantly, will they not wear off a lot faster than the carpet itself?

The Breakfast Eggs Rug is a highly original carpet design which acts more like a fluffy seating item than a rug. The yolks are actually cushions that look extremely huggable- eatable as well. This design looks great, but it is not all that practical, as the white part is likely to get very dirty in time. What do you think? Is it worth the effort of cleaning it everytime? This rug is called “Sunny Side Up” and was designed by Valentina Audrito. -via Worley Gig
