Remember when a rug could just lie there and do nothing? Emiliana Design Studio
doesn’t seem to, judging by its Flying Carpet, a multitasking hybrid for Nanimarquina
. Start with a rug hand-tufted in New Zealand wool. Then, under one or more corners, slip a felt-covered polyurethane foam wedge 13 or 20 1⁄2 inches high.
The result? Floor covering and backrest in one. Offered in green, red, and charcoal gray, the rug is available in two sizes: 70 inches square and 70 by 100 inches.
