These 3D area rugs bring a new dimension to floor coverings. The Terra carpet by Stepevi has a luxurious, thick pile, which allows it to be shaped with grooves and valleys. “Valleysa” is a deliberate term, shaped so deep that you can appreciate it from across the room. As the company says, “the world is not flat, why should a rug be! The color choices range from light to dark grey, purple and ocean-inspired azure each earthy, and true to the Terra concept. These 3D rugs are made of 75 percent polyester and 25 percent wool.
A sculptural creation that transforms area rugs into an alien surface of reaching tendrils, the Lasa Merino Wool Rug makes a dramatic statement in contemporary interiors.

Made from the finest New Zealand merino wool and using cutting-edge technology, the fibers are felted around a dark yarn core for a clearly defined contrast of color.
More of a contemporary floor-panel covering, the Zanzibar carpet brings an exotic edge to any room in your home. Woven using traditional methods, the 100% smooth leather strips overlap in an artful way, giving boring floors – and your feet! – the luxury treatment.
