Gather round, nature and puzzle lovers. Each segment of Sergio Mannino and Francesca Scalettaris's Non-Flying modular carpet features a setting for mulling or metting; adjoined, they make a mini landscape. On Flowerescent's outskirts, a park bench beckons; an orange chair is set by the river in Don't wait for me, I stay here. At the heart of Ceci n'est pas une table (the title a takeoff on Magritte's paradoxical painting) is, quelle surprise, a table. A pool and deck signify Un tuffo dove l'acqua e piu blu; Colorado Dream is a rocky riverside spot. Foliage spills over a brick wall in Hide and Seek. The cheeky pieces can be purchased (or displayed) singly or in groups. And seekers of extra acreage, rejoice: Mannino's made-to-order garden - of highland Tibetan wool - is sure to grow over time. 977-1-4434-602; bestoftibet.com.
