Prepare to be floored: this is carpet as you've never seen it before
Disclaimer: we never thought we'd get excited about carpet, but that's all changed as of today. Moooi (that's Dutch for beautiful), the world-renowned design company founded by none other than the Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers, has turned their high-end and extremely inventive skills to a line of customisable rugs and carpets - and each one is a veritable work of art.
Launched in Milan and coming to Australia by October, the collection includes carpets as you've never seen them - saturated with colour and in some cases, 3D. The incredibly ornamental Signature Carpets range - 48 eccentric designs by big name designers including Marcel Wanders and Studio Job, along with other high profile designers from fashion, the arts and photography are the most extravagant in the collection

The entire range is completely customisable, from the size to the scale of the pattern to the colour palette, allowing you to create your own exclusive piece of Moooi. The house's design library includes 648 colours to choose from and an array of designs ranging from basic to jaw-droppingly beautiful. The collection, along with an edit of Moooi's other statement furniture and lighting designs, will be available from Space showrooms across Australia. Visit spacefurniture.com.au.
