Area rugs are underutilized as feature pieces within a room, and an item like the Black Tie Carpet is sure to keep your guests looking down to appreciate the ebony-hued beauty of this unique object.

As one of two mats designed for Nodus Rugs, this unusual domestic embellishment seeks more attention than its more subtle counterpart. The fancy floor covering is composed of silk at its center, but is framed with a lavish black-leather braid that circles around the piece in three rings. To set off the already extraordinary home fitting, the hand-woven and knotted masterpiece is accented with a bow made of ceramic and a wispy tail. The Black Tie Carpet is another example of Nika Zupanc's knack for eccentric design.
