Studio Proba&#8
Above: Studio Proba’s Day 1083 Rug is part of its Poster a Day Rug line, which is designed in Brooklyn and hand-made in India; from $765 for the 3×5.
West Elm&#8
Above: West Elm’s Abstract Shapes Rug is based on a watercolor painting by Sade Studio. Hand-made in Guatemala, the wool and cotton 5×7 rug is currently on sale for $349.99.
