I am craving this Hand-knotted silk Climbing Leopard rug from The Rug Company
The rich emerald tone and the exotic figure of the stealthy leopard makes for such a striking combination.
It seems like the kind of rug you would see in an eccentric aunt's house or in some old hotel.
I could totally see myself being infatuated with it as a kid and trying to mimic its movements on the floor (yes I was a strange child/still am a strange adult)
According to an issue of In Style from 2006, it's $145 / square foot . That's pretty pricey but it could be worth using as an accent in a small space...
