Embracing Wool Under Foot

I truly believe that when it comes to crafting beautiful area rugs there's no fiber more beautiful, more natural, or more sustainable than wool. Have you ever pressed your bare feet into a plush and luxurious floor covering made of the finest wool? It's so comforting.

So, when I came across the below beauties made from the finest wools one could find in New Zealand...I was instantly in love. I purposely chose soothing neutrals to showcase today. I'm hoping they provide calm to your day.

Created by U.S. designer Michael Stolworthy, a fantastic furniture designer and artist, whose creations are whimsically modern without losing their original practical application. The artwork is so exquisite, yet it appears to fit the contour of the human body perfectly. I would love to try one out with a cocktail in hand! Here are another creation to feast your eyes on:
