Mid-Century Modern with a twist. Excellent condition, like new Design Within Reach Cream Photon Rug from non-smoking, no-pet home. Size: L 10’ W 8’ Pile 1.5" DWR listing: http://www.dwr.com/product/photon-rug-8×10.do?sortby=ourPicks DWR price: $1,800. Asking: $800 OBO, cash only, Pick up in Brooklyn. The Photon Rug adds a twist (literally) to the iconic shag rug – each tendril is offset by a contrasting color in the center (saffron for the cream rug), furthering its fluid, three-dimensional quality. Hand-loomed and hand-bound in India, the effect is achieved by taking high-quality wool that is wrapped around a differently colored acrylic center and then felted. It takes two to three days to produce just one rug. Photon’s high wool content means a natural resistance to dirt, as well as flame retardancy. The Photon Rug’s manufacturer is a member of Rugmark, which ensures that the Photon is manufactured in a socially responsible manner.
