There’s no doubt that Alexander McQueen created some of the most jaw-dropping couture of the past decade. And now the British fashion label started by McQueen (and now run by Sarah Burton) has inspired floor coverings. Designer Edouard Daunas of Martin Patrick Evan has come up with Raw Nature, a range of silk and wool rugs that have taken their colours and patterns from well-known McQueen outfits and accessories. They’re not cheap, at US$41,200, but they’re one way to bring couture into your home. For more, visit the company’s Facebook page.
