I recently splurged on a very nice black and white rug for my living room that, despite my best efforts, has become more of a tan and black rug thanks to my dog. It is 100% my fault for thinking I could somehow always keep her feet clean (in NYC? What was I thinking?) so I’ve embraced that the color contrast isn’t quite as high as I’d like anymore. That said, I still find myself constantly eying bold black & white combos that would be great for people who don’t have “high traffic” or pet issues in their home. These incredible rugs are from a Sardinian company called Mio Karo, lead by designer and illustrator Carolina Melis. From their studio in Porto Cervo, Mio Karo continues the rich Sardinian tradition of weaving through their geometric-style wool rugs (their wool is sourced from local sheep). I’m sort of obsessing over their Quattro Stagioni collection (above and below) but you can check out the entire series right here.
