In an extreme form of art imitating life, this shocking road kill carpet from OOOMS portrays the image of a squashed, bloody fox as it would appear on the road after being run over by a car.

Despite its extreme appearance, the 100% wool handmade carpet is apparently very soft, cuddly and nap-friendly.

If you are aiming for 'tasteful' home decor, this carpet probably won't meet your needs. If, on the other hand, you are aiming for shock and repulsion, a road kill rug may be just what you need. Let's hope the kids don’t draw inspiration from this and attempt to re-create the scene with Fido in the opposite corner!
