These have been out a few months, but somehow I missed them. German designer David Hanauer came out with WorldWide Carpets; using satellite imagery (from Google Earth), he creates carpets that emulate the patterns of classic Persian carpets with contemporary landscapes from a bird’s eye view. From area rugs to wall-t0-wall flooring where the patterns are endlessly repeated.

I’m not sure I’d want one in my home, but it’s a clever concept and I certainly like the way it works at the Sacramento International Airport (bottom photo).
