Here's an interesting idea of using rugs not only for flooring, but also continuously all the way up the walls (and in this case, seating) in a room. The effect is dramatic and cozy; the room's acoustics must be perfect for intimate conversation...and perhaps more.
Designed by Tjep for skincare company ROC, the "protective shelter" is a large box with a garage door like opening, with built-in seating for relaxation. The contrast between the stark white structure and its traditional ornate interior makes this a dream poolside cabana. And we especially like how you can see people's legs peeking out from underneath.
