It had been a few months since my last trip to Chamber when I popped in last week before an opening and found the store has all new merchandise! New Stuff – Yay!

Of course, it was hard to miss this amazing, one-of-a-kind carpet by designer Alexandra Kehayoglou, which — as you can see by my photos — is definitely the focal point of the stores’ main showroom space.

When I first walked up to this carpet, I thought it was actual clumps of moss spread across the display, because it looks so real.

Imagine how much fun it would be to roll around on or to walk on with bare feet, but not, necessarily, to clean or vacuum.

To create the Pastizal carpet, Kehayoglou wove the textile with a hand-tuft system using a pistol that the artist manipulates on vertical racks, creating the weft that will give shape to the final piece. Kehayoglou creates unique carpets after visiting different native landscapes.

The carpet comes with lots of these little green guys as well, that I imagine you could arrange as you see fit, and sort of change it up.

Here it is with what they call the Brick Sofa.
