I'm breaking free of the monopoly Madeline Weinrib has had on me. It's been nagging me for a while that the zig-zag isn't a wool rug, so isn't exactly going to be something that you could sit on. And I like to sit on the floor sometimes. But take a look at Bev Hisey's fabulous rugs. This Canadian began her career as a fashion designer before she began designing for the home. I also love her laser-cut felt room dividers / wall panels.
