Dot Carpet by HAY

January 9, 2012

I have a total carpet crush and can’t wait to share my latest design obsession… I’m currently smitten with the Dot Carpet in 100% wool made of felted balls, over a thousand of them, per rug! Created by Scholten and Baijings for HAY in Denmark, I really love the one shown below with the hot pink balls in the grid pattern and the gray and white version – so stunning – I imagine walking on one would feel like a mini massage.

Such a pretty piece for any home, any style. Available in three sizes, I imagine these will fly out of shops the moment someone steps on one and sees how well they are made and how subtle yet “there” they really are. I love the bold neon colors especially as an accent right now as we all do, so these are right up my alley. Lip smackin’, am I right?!
