You’re going to love me for this post. I can’t even believe this kind of stuff that is out there. Thank heavens for the internet and Google Images and people with off-the-wall crazy, fun ideas. So, I found two interactive carpets, well, technically they are rugs. Just like it sounds, these are rugs you can physically change to suit your wishes.
The first one is an area rug that is hung on the wall and used as a drawing board. You know how when you vacuum your carpet it leaves lines and patterns? Well, this is based off of that idea. The difference is that the fibers are attached with special “joint sockets” that allows them to me moved, and then to hold their position. Giles Miller is the designer of this fabulous interactive rug and I thank him profusely for thinking so far outside the box. I love it.

The second interactive rug is called the Daisy Garden Interactive Rug by Joe Jin Design Company, Ltd. It is a fluffy, grass-green area rug that looks like a lawn, but without all the itching. Hidden below the fibers of the rug are 84 fastening system points. The rug comes with various sized artificial daisies that can be arranged and fastened throughout the rug. This would be go great for a girl’s room, oh heck, I’d even like it in the Living Room. What a conversation starter that would be!

These interactive rugs are a stride in carpet innovation that should be truly celebrated! Have any fun ideas of your own? You never know, you could have the next fresh idea in area rugs in your imagination, just waiting to be discovered!
