The latest sensation in interior design is trippy floor covering!
Every floor you’re seeing is 100% code flat! From the seismic shift carpet on the left, spotted in a Paris video game store, to the gentle waves in the new ballroom of the Marriott Solana in Southlake, Texas – it’s clever 2-D patterning that makes them look 3-D. That’s what tricks the eye, messes with the mind, and challenges the balance. Don’t look down and you’ll be fine. (Let’s hope these businesses have good liability insurance!)
And if a garden meditation spot is a bit too serene for your taste, the other extreme is this backyard deck designed by Berkeley-based architect Thom Faulders – commissioned by Apple exec and art collector Jeff Dauber, who “wanted someone to barf when they look at it.”
