Gum Ball Rug

dot-matrix-rug

I was flipping through a large stack of catalogs last night seeing if there was anything I just couldn’t live without and getting ideas and inspiration for my own home (and closet!). I was completely smitten when I opened up The Land of Nod catalog to page 10 where I found this absolutely wonderful, super colorful ‘Dot Matrix’ rug. It is a 4′ x 6′ compilation of hand formed and stitched little balls. It looks like a work of art.

My son has been obsessed with gum ball machines lately and I can’t help but compare this rug to a collage of sugary sweet gum balls, all tied together making a cheerful floor covering. I actually think it would look very cool hung on a wall too. I have a number of friends who are afraid to paint their walls anything but shades of beige, white or grey (I on the other hand am not afraid of bold colorful walls) but still want to make their home look warm and cheerful. This multi-colored wool dot gumball rug would be a perfect way to make an artistic statement and add some festive cheer to any room in the house.
