Extinct Animal Rug by Moooi
A truly martial-looking pattern of grey-blue scales constellate this carpet, which takes its inspiration from the skin of the ancient Dwarf Rhino. The unique structure of the animal’s skin, resembling a suit of arms, is zoomed into and emphasized with metallic highlights.
A square, invincible warrior, this rug is perfectly suited to bring a touch of mighty elegance.

Christian Lacroix was born in 1951 in Trinquetaille, France. As a child Lacroix, like innumerable other young fashion designers, had a knack for the art. Lacroix loved to sketch famous dresses and menswear from history. Lacroix attended the University of Montpellier, presumably studying Art History. He continued his studies at the world-renowned Sorbonne in Paris, where he completed a dissertation on 18th-century French art. The budding art historian also pursued a degree in museum studies at France’s Louvre Museum. Lacroix’s young maturation was unusual for its intellectuality and emphasis on art history.
