if i had a stack of extra money around i would be plopping myself and a few d*s editors on a plane to milan for next month’s furniture fair. while the main show isn’t always my taste (it runs a little fancy pants for me sometimes), the zona tortona is always my cup of tea. full of young, up-and-coming designs, the tortona is like an explosion of fresh, raw ideas. one of the design studios showing there this year is called tufted and i love their new pixel rug. based in portugal, tufted is still updating their website with new work, but filipe sent over some images of their latest piece, the pixel rug. i love all of the color and the rainbow effect it brings to the floor- in a time when the weather is dark and dreary, it’s the perfect antidote to the rainy day blues. to find out more about pixel, you can visit them at the zona tortona starting april 14th, or check out their website right here. thanks, filipe!
