The Map rug by Harry Allen is an exercise is logical decoration. It is a play on scale and brings a unique topographic quality that is both recognizable and seemingly random. Allen was inspired by his grandmother’s Oriental carpets, reminiscing of a bygone time: “When my brother and I were kids, we’d play with toys on the rug like it was a big map. Blue became the sea and red was land.”
The Map rug by Harry Allen is made of tufted New Zealand wool and is available for custom order in a size of your choosing.
