For anyone who’s ever been mesmerized looking out an airplane window at the patchwork patterns of fields below, the Land Carpet recreates the manmade beauty of the arial views on your floor. Designed by former architect Florian Pucher, the 100% New Zealand wool rugs use satellite images to represent different continents and countries, with fields of varying heights lending a surprising tactile and visual element.

From Europe’s odd shapes to the grids of the U.S.A. and African shades of tan, the floor coverings are mini-lessons in geography and agriculture in addition to making an attractive and modern decor choice.
