The Non-Flying Carpet

Sergio Mannino's Non-Flying Carpet is a handmade, modular wool rug created in Nepal by professional artisans. Launched at Wanted Design 2012, this rug can be laid in different configurations and is designed to recreate the look and feel of a courtyard.

As fun and quirky as it is, it would be easy to relegate this to a kids room, but why should they have all the fun? With a few accessories, this rug would make quite the statement in a sun room or informal lounge. Think about outdoor furniture that can be used indoors, organic shapes and a good serve of real greenery (as opposed to the wool kind).
