lasa rug by jab anstoetz

i like the playful raised pile on this lasa rug from german design firm jab anstoetz. it reminds me of macaroni, an effect which is achieved by felting the main color around a darker yarn core. it’s made of new zealand merino wool and looks supremely cozy.

i love seeing dramatic color pops in neutral rooms, and this would definitely fit the bill. i also love their perfect colors (it also comes in apple green!).

be sure to check jab’s website for other beautiful things.

    love that macaroni art! (just kidding)

    i wonder if you could make wool angels if you lay down on it… so cool.

    wool angels, awesome. such a cool rug. the slight germophobe in me wonders how you could keep it really clean with all the deep crevices. maybe we just don’t think about that.

    hi bri,

    i think the rules for keeping this rug in the home are 1) no pets; 2) no dust; 3) no food or drink near it; and, 4) no stepping on it, because your footprints will remain in it like sand on the beach. and then you will have to vacuum.

    not too bad at all. ;)

  5. Bri Says:

    Hmmm, kinda high expectations, but hey, it’s art. Can’t argue with art.

  6. the scholar Says:

    i love it despite these rules — it looks like acres of fun moppy doll hair to me.
