A basic rug design can be a bit overplayed, but the three dimensional texture of the marble carpet created by artist Steven Emmanuel is incredibly dynamic and playfully fun.

The swirling rainbow colors that make marbles so fascinating to children and collectors intermingle to create a beautifully intricate array of colors and abstract patterns in this piece of artistic furniture. Considering it is made out of glass, the rug is probably not actually meant to be stepped on, but it acts as a new way to display art in the home as it lies on the floor instead of on the wall.

Adults who fondly remember playing with marbles as children will find the marble rug by Steven Emmanuel a wonderfully nostalgic work of art.
