Florian Pucher's Land Rugs Mimic Aerial Views




    Vienna-born architect Florian Pucher teamed up with his partner Sophia Liu Bo to design floor coverings and the results are these quirky, contemporary rugs, which nabbed the duo an Elle Decoration award last year. Made of hand-tufted New Zealand wool, the vivid designs evoke Google maps or what you'd see of the countryside from high above. We love how they bring a bright, modern pop of color to rooms while adding a whimsical touch.

    [OPEN HOUSE VID] Tips Of The Trade: Hampton Designer Showhouse
    Always jam-packed with inspiring decor, the ninth edition of the annual Hampton Designer Showhouse in Sag Harbor, NY challenged 26 local designers to fashion razzle-dazzle rooms to benefit Southampton Hospital. Five of the stylesetters show us their sublime spaces, including a sleek, stylish living room by Pat Healing and Dan Barsanti of HB Home, Lisa Sternfeld's small, but charming top-floor aerie, Bob Bakes' classic Hamptons kitchen and a cozy den by Patrik Lönn.
