    The Gang's All Here: 7 Eclectic Designer Rugs and Carpets

    Condensation on a cold windowpane. The intricate wiring of electric circuit boards. A post modern mash-up of William Shakespeare and tribal Africa. Such eclectic inspirations fueled a host of designers teaming up with various manufacturers. Jonathan Adler applies hisg roovy vibe and bold color sense to deco-esque prints for the Rug Company, Interior Design Hall of Famers Bunny Williams and Clodagh collaborate with Doris Leslie Blau and Bentley, respectively, and graphics legend Milton Glaser joins Nanimarquina for the afore mentioned culture clash with the Bard. Materials even go high-touch: Witness Geoffrey Bradfield’s tactile hair-on hide.
