65 Abnormal Rugs

From Fake Blood Carpets to Hairstyle-Inspired Rugs

— June 4, 2010 — Art & Design
Lately, when it comes to redesigning a room, everyone is leaving behind the ordinary and gravitating toward abnormal rugs for that added touch.

No longer are plain solid colors or even a simple pattern considered trendy; instead, it's all about being extra quirky with home decor. From crime scene carpets to heated snake rugs, there's no limit to what people will think of next.

Implications - Consumers are looking for designs that are more unique to create a specific style that is original. Only the most cutting-edge and unconventional styles are sought after in today's market of furniture. The home furnishing industry could seek out alternative materials in order to create products that cannot be found anywhere else.
