Look! Two Alvar Alto-Inspired Rug DIYs

The Savoy vase by Alvar Alto has become a shape as ubiquitous as it is iconic, this time showing up as a way to customize a standard-issue Ikea bath mat. We think the outline lends itself to drying one's feet quite well.

Svanna of Carpe + Item traced the vase, enlarged the outline and made a pattern with newspaper that she used to cut out the bath mat. Since we don't have a vase to trace, we could do the same by downloading the shape from the internet.

Her choices of blue and white are quite classy, but we can imagine this idea also working well with a patterned mat.
