Surely I’m not the only one who spends their summers sans shoes. It is safe to say my toes are open and free the duration of the summer months and it only seems apropos to continue this tradition through September and our “Endless Summer.” The desire for luxurious pedicures aside, I find myself looking around my house and reevaluating my rug situation during these months. I mean, if my bare feet are going to be padding around on the floor, I want something comfy and stylish greeting them.
Taryn Boyd of Talking Squid creates fabulous, eco-friendly rugs from upcycled tshirts repurposed from a screenprinting shop. As Boyd says, these rugs “wear and tear like your favorite t-shirt; they last a lifetime.” The perfect marriage of form and function result in stylish rugs that add the perfect touch of comfortable whimsy to your room. Channeling the stylings of the ever popular flokati rug, Boyd’s designs add a touch of homemade sophistication to the picture. My feet would be happy and carefree atop this grey rug and I’m pretty sure they would stay that way for the duration of this “Endless Summer.”
