Rug – Wall Art? Why not!

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

We are often inspired by interior design and when we see a different way of doing things we give a shout out.

Recently, we saw rugs being displayed as wall art in the GrandinRoad catalog.

This concept is similar to Casart’s in that we view our wallcoverings as art for your walls.

Here’s GrandinRoad’s catalog page with their rug wall art and the bird table that inspired a few Birds & Birch wall-art, room-concepts of our own.

Their abstract rug is quite beautiful as wall art.

This is also an easy way to warm up your walls this winter with Casart coverings.

Now let’s see how Casart removable wallcovering might look using our Birds & Birch removable wallcovering with a teal/ bold background.
