I booked my airline ticket to go to Geek Girl Con in Seattle this October — which, by the way, we’d love to see you at! — and ever since I’ve been in a mild panic state. I hate flying. But I found something that reminds me of the best part of flying: looking out the window to see the patchwork of land passing beneath the plane. These are rugs by Florian Pucher: they are based on rural and urban aerial landscapes, and they are gorge. Each rug is hand-made with New Zealand wool.
And he’s got a collection of landscapes from around the world. Want to pretend you’re a giant in Africa? You’ve got it.
Or stomp around Europe.
So you can’t swing a $1200 rug at the mo’? This is kind of brilliant: Pucher made his patterns available for download as desktop and iPad wallpapers.
I just love the whole concept of this series. This kind of project brings imagination and playfulness into the home in a practical way.
