Fourth of July Dreams: Doves and Stripes Rug

Fourth of July makes us think of American flags, which makes us think of Luke Irwin's Doves and Stripes Rug. The London-based rug designer was inspired by "a dream in which the stars of the American flag were transformed into white doves of peace."

For more information on Doves and Stripes (interesting fact: Barack Obama is in possession of one, via a gift from Irish foundation Jack & Jill), go to Luke Irwin.
