Taiwanese artist Michael Lin is known for creating large installations inspired by traditional textiles from his country. The brilliantly colored floral patterns are quite a sight to behold, like this image from a past exhibit of his work...

We believe Lin actually painted on wood panels that were laid on top of the floor, but it certainly makes for good (if lofty) inspiration if you're thinking of forgoing a rug and making a dramatic statement underfoot.
