Colorful, Abstract Rugs Inspired by a 1975 Film
I can’t help but love this collection of rugs from Brooklyn-based Cold Picnic. Even if you don’t know the story behind them, they’re beautiful abstract compositions that look like textured pieces of art for your floors. The Passenger rugs, which take inspiration from the 1975 Michelangelo Antonioni film of the same name starring Jack Nicholson and Maria Schneider, incorporate aspects of the colors and landscapes seen in the movie. To reflect that, they built giant cardboard box dioramas (48″ x 40″) creating worlds based on each style of rug.
