Espina, Spanish for "thorn"
Opposites do attract—just ask Esti Barnes. Vacationing in Antibes, France, the founder and design director of Top Floor spotted a large round cactus. The sighting sparked Espina, Spanish for “thorn,” an apt label for the spiky tendrils that populate the circular rug. But there are no pricks or barbs to fear, just the luxurious feel of hand-tufted wool. Like the manufacturer’s entire assortment, it’s available in any number of custom sizes and colorations.
