Brooklyn-based designer Aelfie Oudghiri created this blue block rug for home retailer CB2. The soft and hand-loomed carpet makes a bold visual statement and resembles one of artist Mark Rothko's painted masterpieces.

The Russian artist is known for his linear and color-blocked works that were a part of the abstract-expressionism movement. This geometric rug is a nod to Rothko's memorable paintings and is made by layering a gradient of blue shades atop one another.

Made in India, the wool and cotton blue block rug from CB2 adds a touch of color to minimalist spaces that are in need to a visual boost. The piece is available in two sizes, a smaller that measures 5' x 8' and a larger that measures 8' x 10'.
