Alexander McQueen For The Rug Company

  • Pin it

Nesting all around, you say? Yeah, it must be the autumnal air that’s getting us inside, thus redecorating, somewhat. (I wouldn’t mind a bit of sunshine, though, I’m having a laundry filled week and I would happily appreciate all the help I can get – I’m a natural, I love having my laundry drying out in the clean, fresh air instead of a tumbling metal box)

Getting back to redecorating: there’s something you have to see! Alexander McQueen’s rug for The Rug Company (remember dame Vivienne also worked a collection for them)! Just before he flew away, he designed a series of six rugs for the infamous label from which this image of a flock of hummingbirds. Visionary much? (the hand – knotted cashmere and silk rug below is available for $18,900 here; via)

This is so lovely. I would not want anyone to step on it so I would have it mounted like a tapestry would be. : )

Kpriss, why is my ‘name’ coming up red on your site as of late?

Oh, thanks for telling me, it hasn’t changed for me, it must be a MAC thing ;) No, seriously, we’ll be looking into it, but we see no change for the moment on our side, if anything else comes up, please, let me know!

cc, there’s no need for that, really :(

I see Ellington’s name in red too and when I click on it I see a silly page. But I see Ellington’s name only in red at the first post???

That rug is very beautiful. I agree I get the shivers at the idea someone set a foot on it. Maybe barefeet in the bedroom? And only after a shower of course. :)
