Nature-Inspired Rugs Transform Your Home Into a Natural Landscape

Cole Mellino | February 14, 2016 11:37 am

Argentinian artist Alexandra Kehayoglou turns carpeting scraps that would have otherwise been thrown out into beautiful works of art. Using recycled scraps from her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires, Kehayoglou creates stunning patchworks that resemble natural landscapes, including moss, grass, sand, pastures, lakes and snow.

Kehayoglou has been creating the rugs since 2008. It takes about two months to make each rug, which she crafts using “a laborious hand-tufting process,” according to Colossal. “The carpets balance form and function and can powerfully transform an entire room into a lush meadow dotted with pools of water and tufts of grass. Many of her works even function as part tapestry and flow from walls to floor, or work as covers for chairs or stools.”

Kehayoglou told Country Living that each rug has personal meaning to her. Every piece is based on a specific memory and is tied to the landscapes of her home country. “The pieces are big and feel infinite,” she said. “They are meant to be portals that have the power of taking you where your memories are.”

Check out these photos of her beautiful rugs:
