The Rughut by Myung Jieun is an interior rug that doubles as a cozy hut. The hut is formed when the rug is drawn up by pulling on an orange colored elastic cord. Once it's gathered into a hut shape, the colored cord is fastened to a ceiling hook to keep everything in place.

Kids would love this as a fort or playhouse, and can play on the radial-shaped mat when the fort is not suspended. The Rughut received the Red Dot Award for Design Concept 2009. Stats for Suspension Rug Huts Trending: Older & Chilly
