For a number of reasons, we always take our shoes off when we walk in the door. And we like our guests too as well, but we don't make a big stink about it if they don't catch on. With a rug like Lisa El Sayed's Tapistrongs Rug, we might be able to nudge guests in the right direction more easily.

The Tapistrongs Rug has matching slippers built in to the design. All along the edge of the rug are cut out sections that have been made into comfy little slippers.

There are enough of them to accommodate a bunch of guests. Just ask them to slip off their shoes at the door, and invite them to step onto the rug and into a pair of matching slippers. Or maybe the slippers are just for you? You'll never misplace them again this way.

Now, as clever as the Tapistrongs Rug is, we see a few problems. Won't the slippers wear out long before the rug? Can you buy replacements? What if you guests don't want to wear slippers that other people have been wearing?

Do you like the Tapistrong Rug?
