Hard choice – a carpet or a pouf?

The Belgian brand Casalis has launched a line of poufs as an addition to their exceptional collection of carpets. The poufs are made in a three-dimensional elastic fabric, composed of the very best of materials: kid mohair and merino wool. It is so hard to choose which are better – the carpets or the poufs, so my vote goes to both!

A carpet to call your own – Nodus

Based on the notion that the middle class of design product consumers will soon disappear, italian brand NODUS offers some high-end, customizable carpets. They have invited famous designers – Matali Crasset, the Campana brothers and the like, to create some innovative carpets.

The array of different styles and notions is astounding, as is the choice of designer names.

Never the less, some designs prove to be particularly effective – see the work of Nika Zupanc (Black tie carpet), Giulio Iacchetti and many more at Nodus site.

Carina Karlsson from Sweden makes interesting and useful items with a childish twist – her “couch potato” (soffpotatis) can be used as a cushion or a toy. What`s even more interesting is the way she uses that image of a large-headed monster to create colorful two-dimensional decorations, which are then applied to trays, cutting boards and more. See all her work at her blog  carinaa.com
