For most people, carpets and rugs are utilitarian things -- soft under the feet and great for warming up cold floors. For artist Alexandra Kehayoglou, they are works of lush, verdant art, made using recycled scraps and thread from a carpet factory in Buenos Aires, owned by her family.
We've seen Kehayoglou's stunning art previously, and her latest work is pretty eye-popping too, creating both a backdrop and a ground of nature that emulates the feeling of moss, grass, sand, pastures and even snow.
We talk a lot about how to integrate nature into our lives -- oftentimes, that means making an effort to spend more time outdoors and unplugging. But bringing nature into the home works too, and besides cultivating more plants, that's why these rugs are superb: simple, made using recycled materials, and evocative of nature's beauty.
