It’s not often we post about things that you can actually buy with your hard-earned cash, but seeing as it was payday last week we present you with one of the most coveted household items we’ve seen for a long time. We found out about Schönstaub after lovely photographer Nadja Stäubli dropped by the office last week. Together with pal David Schönen, she creates machine woven, large format carpets that resemble the creamy, sci-fi goodness of The Milky Way.
These are far superior to the average outer-space print that you find on so many goods these days; some of these rugs take about six months to make, and the level of craftsmanship that goes into them is ridiculous. Got a wooden floor? It’s practically naked without one of these bad boys. Start saving.
