Global Warming: NEL Colectivo’s New Line of Environmentally Conscious Carpets
Unique new rugs at Karkula
Look closer—this striking rug from Spanish designer nanimarquina is actually a poignant expression of the need to address the world’s climate-change emergency. The aptly name Global Warming, designed by the NEL Colectivo, depicts the solitude of one small, three-dimensional polar bear, set adrift and unprotected on a block of ice in the midst of an immense blue sea. It makes one think—and yes, it looks good, too. Made of 100 percent wool, it is hand tufted in two sizes: 140 x 200 ($1,553) and 200 x 300 ($3,326). Available at Karkula in Manhattan (48 Walker St; 212-645-2216) or online at karkula.com. For more info: nanimarquina.com/en.
