A beautiful carpet makes a huge difference in the overall appearance of a room. The Mala Carpet, for example, is a beige and black carpet with a geometrical pattern. When it's placed under living room furnishings it ties each element of the room together, looking absolutely stunning.

Not only does this beautiful carpet score points in the design department with a vintage Moroccan pattern, it features a plush texture made from New Zealand wool. Purchasing this rug makes you a contributor to a non-profit organization called Project Mala; 100% of the rug proceeds go to building schools in the carpet-weaving region of India in hopes to eliminate child labor.

The project aims to fund schools that provide two meals per day, healthcare, clothing, shoes and school supplies.
