For those who are completely obsessed with guitars (like us and most of our customers) having an area throw rug that depicts legendary guitars and basses must be nothing but thrilling beyond belief. I know that at the end of the day when I pull up an armchair to watch Lawn and Order I like to put my footsies up on a soft, inviting rug made from synthetic fiber known as Olefin, made from alkenes, which is used in the manufacture of various textiles, and dyed in a pattern that brings to mind the finest and most revered frescoes by Raphael and Michelangelo if they had been obsessed with guitars, and who’s to say they weren’t? The guitars portrayed, in a semi-impressionistic way, are interpretive of a Hofner Bass, Flying V, Rickenbacker 370, a lefty Les Paul, an ES-335, Stratocaster and a Martin with what looks like an old DeArmond soundhole pickup. All of these are represented in various pastel colors, but especially red, green, white and pink against a black background. We are advised by the maker that these rugs laugh in the face of, um, fading, stains and from becoming begrimed, if you know what I mean. We are also told (but we’ll believe almost anything) that these rugs were made on a type of loom that was originally invented in 1801 in France as the first automatic loom able to weave complex patterns. We are delighted by all of this esoteric and yet culturally satisfying information, and you will be too, if your let your toes do the walking through this garden of frets, strings and fine woods and workmanship portrayed in a durable and discerning medium.
